Ballona Creek Bike Path

Rough Start - Great Finish

September, 2022 by andrewsantiago1

The views aren’t pretty when you leave out of the Culver City entrance to the trail, and it doesn’t particularly smell great either, but the views quickly get better, especially when you get closer to Playa De Rey beach. The beach itself is a sweet reward for a semi challenging, sometimes hilly ride. If you drive there, set your GPS to Syd Kronenthal Park for 4 hours of free parking. There’s also a rec center there with bathrooms and a fountain to refill your water bottle before your start. The entrance to the path is a steep slope, so save some energy for your exit back up it. Also, be mindful of what hour you head out as I encountered a large group of students on the path during school dismissal hours. The students were nice enough to clear a path (with some heavy bell ringing).

Arroyo Seco Bike Path

Dangerous Encounter with Homeless

September, 2022 by xtrsmith

I was on the Arroyo Seco Bike Path traveling east from LA towards South Pasadena on my bicycle commuting from work. There was some thick glass hidden in some dirt that caused my bicycle tire to be flatted with a loud, sharp sound. It felt like it was a booby trap intentionally causing bikes to have flat tires. I see a lot of broken glass and try to miss it. There seems to always be broken bottles and vandalism to intimidate residents from using the path.

My bike's flat tire brought me to a halt and some shirtless man approached me and asked me for fifty cents. He was walking right at me and appeared he was homeless. I felt I was in danger. I told him to stay back a few times.

This could be a great commuting and recreational pathway but it is unkept and littered with trash and encampments full of intimating homeless. A few weeks ago I saw a minivan on fire and like the other reviews on this website show that LA needs to get involved.

Jeffrey Open Space Trail

Well done!

September, 2022 by otterbob87

This concrete trail is very well maintained and worth your time. Good workout on a bike. My first time on the trail was from Portola to I-5 where I diverted left to Sand Canyon and accidentally discovered the Walnut trail :). Irvine has so many good trails!

Hicks Canyon Trail

Well maintained and safe

September, 2022 by otterbob87

Its pretty and plenty of shade. Many residents are walking and riding on this one so I’ve not seen any creepers lurking. Read “toolbear”’s review its quite in depth and still spot on even after 13 years :).

San Diego Creek Trail

Very nice pleasant bike ride

August, 2022 by mark0053

I started at the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve Interpretive Center. There was lots of parking there and on the street next to it. The trail starts along the preserve and winds through Irvine. You can really tell you are in an upper class area as the trail was not only beautiful but well maintained and totally free of trash and homeless issues. It was well marked and well maintained. This is a trail I will do again in the future. You feel very safe on this trail during the entire route.

Santa Ana River Trail

Nice long urban bike path.

August, 2022 by mark0053

I've done this trail several times. Last year in 2021 it was totally void of homeless issues. This year in 2022 I encountered several encampments and graffiti issues. I usually start in the middle and do the westbound route the first day and the eastbound route the second. I normally start at the Honda Center in Anaheim and go from there.

Santiago Creek Trail

Typical California Urban Trail

August, 2022 by mark0053

I've got to say I'm a bit disappointed with this trail. I encountered several homeless people along the way. The trail is NOT well marked and you can end up in the wrong place if you're not careful. I guess it's better than nothing but for me it is next to nothing. I started at Hart Park which is a good place to park your car.

Huntington Beach Bicycle Trail

If you like the ocean you will like this trail.

August, 2022 by mark0053

I've done this trail several times. I usually park at the south end and pay the state park system $15 to park my car in their lot. The southern and northern ends of the trail are less busy but in the middle it can be very busy and crowded. I usually try to go on a weekday. In the middle section there is a Huntington Beach Police Station and today I actually seen an officer with a radar gun clocking of all things bicycles going by. There are lots of signs with 10 mph or 5 mph limits but I have never before anywhere seen bikes being clocked by radar. Welcome to California.
