Long trail, nice views. You do come across 2 cross walks and eventually have to cross the street to continue on the path. It can be easy to lose your way because you cross with other bike paths!

The Santa Clara River Trail is a nice bike path, but the Lost Canyon trailhead is not the best way to access it: limited parking, and for the first mile or so, no shade as it parallels the Antelope Valley Freeway.

First to Review

So if you are looking to get outside and are really in a pinch, this will work for you. It is part of the Santa Clarita Paseo System. These are all paved paths along the Santa Clara River and it's tributaries. If you are riding your bike it is perfect and you really can go anywhere in the entire city. The down side is that if you are looking to get in a quick walk or hike, be ready for noise, bikes, dogs, trash, and everything else that comes with suburbia. The one saving grace is that the river is mostly undisturbed and filled with wildlife. There are small spots where you can take some single track use trails and poke around a bit. Sadly though when you do come across a group of curious rabbits like I did, there is some guy on a bike that comes flying by before you can get your camera out.
