I ride this path frequently for a moderate workout. I start at Eldorado Park and head West towards Seal Beach. The path is smooth and relatively straight with mild headwinds heading West. I ride to the trails end, then head South the extra 1/2 mile to the Seal Beach Pier. I take a short break then head back but there are a couple of restaurants and a Cold Stone ice cream shop at the pier. There are lots of families with kids riding the path on weekends so if you have issues with that leave early (7:00 to 10:A.M.). During summer months, this is a main path for young non drivers to the beach all week. Week days between Noon and 3:00 P.M. are pretty clear for casual to advanced riders. Either early or mid-day is your best bet during weekdays. No worries for most during mid day as most advanced riders know how to avoid you. Good all around ride.

the last underpass may be covered by water during high tide

a nice ride which can be made longer by getting on futher up the up the riverbed.. The path actually starts at Azusa .

great bike/jogging trail

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 trail for a long ride and nice view 's

I like this trail I'm always on

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.

Nice ride to the beach. Trail was crowded and it gets a little narrow in some parts when you reach the channel. But it was a treat because of the cooler weather at the beach. Enjoyed it and can't wait to ride it again.

Had a good time with family biking down the river. Just a straight paved road to the beach, it's pretty fun

Did this trail today. I actually started from my home which hits the trail at the Carson St entrance. So its about a mile less than the actual trailhead. It's a nice ride along the river/creek, whatever you want to call it. It gets wider towards the beach. It can get crowded depending what day and what time you go. The beach at the end is nice, good place for a break. Also there is River's End cafe/restaurant if you want to grab some food. Ate there once, pretty good. Lots of cyclist go there. All in all, good workout.
