I have been running this trail for years and have recently decided to go elsewhere. There are a lot more homeless people, tents and trash along the trail. Yesterday while running someone had parked their van/home right on the trail, as a solo female runner I felt very unsafe. Hopefully this situation gets better, because it is a very nice urban "nature" trail and I miss it.

Wouldn’t recommend on days that are very hot. Not a lot of shade in most areas.

This is more of a jogging trail. The coolest thing about this trail.......BUNNIES! I do this run at daybreak and have counted up to 51 bunnies!

Nice easy hike for beginners or with kids. Partly shaded which is welcome on hot sunny days. Good training hike option for seniors.

Boring, flat but convenient with plenty of shades.

This trail is long, straight, flat, and wide. It is therefore ideal for cross country/track work out, 5K runs, and bicycles. It is also good for walking and jogging with or without animals and children. However, there is no way to loop back across the river west of Balboa Boulevard. Bicyclists can connect from the starting point to the Orange Bus Line biking trail which connects the East from the west San Fernando Valley.
