It's a good walking trail, except for the nauseous odors, I don't think I'll come back

This trail is a concrete trail that goes longer than expected but still feels a bit underwhelming compared to the park across the road. It is definitely more geared towards fitness, as most people jog or bike the trail. It’s all concrete and while it does not take you directly to the lake in the middle, you can still have a view of it and go afterwords. There is plenty of parking and lots of birds and geese. There are even little workout station to the side at every quarter mile or so. The parking price of 5 dollars gets you into both parks, and the one across the street closes early so I would recommend the one across the street first since it’s the superior setting and trail. Once finished with that, hop on over to this trail of you want more (most people won’t). Try both out. Come to this one for fitness and use the other one for sightseeing, a wilderness vibe, and adventure.

I love love love this walk!!!The 8 miles kicks my butt!!!!!

It’s an overall good trail for a quick run although there are many detours you have to make to go back to were you started, there is some trash here and there but it’s a good small trail to talk a short walk , I would recommend to go with a family member, friend, or to take your dogs for a quick walk, but do not leave them without a leash!

One of my favorite rides. water front leads right to the Rio Hondo trail

Don’t come here. Not so safe. Lots of young homeless people. Lots of trash.

I love this trail! It was the first bit of hiking I have ever done ever in life, and it was pretty easy! I did this hike with my 2.5 year old. She and I did 2.5 miles walking. There was a point towards the end where I threw her on my shoulders because she was beat, but it was easy and we had fun!

This is my first time at this park. The paved trail was a nice 2.5 mile walk. We forget to start the app until about 3/4 mile in. My biggest complaint is the bathroom. OMGsh, how gross. There was throw up in the sinks, poop all over the one stall, at least 1inch of water all over the floor. There is a lot of traffic noise at part of the park as well. But overall this was a nice walk.

This 2.4 mile walk around the wetlands is full of birds, turtles, squirrels and lizards. Lots of greenery. We was there on a cloudy morning day which made for a perfect experience. There are a few transients roaming around the area and trash in some locations. Other than that I would recommend this for the whole family and the dogs.

If you're walking your dog along the Long Beach Shoreline Bike Path, make sure to stop at Rosie's Dog Beach. I took my dog to Rosie's dog beach in Long Beach, CA. The beach is really great - wide, flat and clean (other than some seaweed and small tar balls). Facilities are good (showers, toilets). Getting to/from the beach from the western beach cities is a pain. There is a lot of bridge construction and the usual heavy traffic to/from the port. Overall, the beach is so nice and my dog had such a great time it's worth going on occasion.

Beautiful : ) Lots of little creatures

one of my fav'z after a day hiking Bolsa Chica Reserve maybe do some kayaking today leeway sailing...day old pizza for breakfast waiting on the sunrise ! #vantrampn

Great coastal bike path. This path is worth doing again and again.

Just want to mention that this place is great for women hiking alone, it is a nature preserve in the city, that sits next to a freeway, so you won't have to worry about mountain lions or snakes. There are always nice people and families here, no creepy guys.

Easy walk. My kids love it!

Wonderful starter trail especially for young kids. Now my oldest daughter wants to go hiking again with more animals. The nice ones!

Beautiful place lots of flowers & lovely turtles ....had an awesome time walking those 2 miles :)

I did not enjoy this walk. The area made me uncomfortable, I was worried someone would break into my car. I don’t feel comfortable bringing my son here. I’m not going back.

Yep, a well maintained forest trail in East Long Beach with birds, turtles, rabbits, squirrels and cranes. Serene and quiet at 7:30 AM on Saturday. Not so much by 8:00 AM. A worthy trail for your morning walk. I will be back.

Full of wonder smells and song birds. Tall greenery and so many types of trees! Silk worms, butterflies, turtles, geese, and lizards. Wheel hair accessible. I loved it. No headphones needed. $6 to park

easy hikes for all ages . different trails .some long n short

Very relaxing hike! Flat with no elevation.
