Nice easy ride with only slight elevation and a moderate headwind on the way out provided for a much easier ride on the return. not much in the way of scenery until you get close to the beach.

The San Gabriel portion of the trail is well paved, with minimal drastic elevation changes. It is great for long bike rides for endurance. Portions within six miles of Seal Beach provide fantastic views of the river, a factory, and nurseries. It is narrow, my guess is 8ish feet wide however, and can become busy.

Great bike ride for the family, and you can jump in the water at the end of the ride, or grab a bite to eat at the cafe. Always a good amount of wildlife to see

Parked my truck at regional park in Cerritos and rode my bike to the trail / riverbed. It is around 16 miles round trip to seal beach and back. Ate lunch at the rivers end cafe, not the best but pretty good. I have done this many a time and it is a very good workout.
