This is a nice rail-with-trail for getting around locally in the Lancaster/Palmdale area. A word of caution though - when going north and crossing Sierra Highway from west to east at Technology Drive (1/2 mile south of Rancho Vista Blvd/Avenue P) be sure to wait for the WALK signal, and don’t just rely on the green traffic signal for the cars. This is because traffic from the right (northbound traffic) doesn’t stop when the light is green for the traffic on Technology Drive.
From the southern end of the trail you can also connect to the Avenue S Bike Trail. This is a nice trail (which is not a rail-trail) that extends for several miles in an east-west direction (with a few gaps). There is also a gap of about 1.5 miles between the two trails.
Great Bike and Running Trail in Brea, clean, safe, and easy. Wish it was longer. I also learned something new it has a lower and upper section with stairs and a bike wheel pathway, I hadn't seen before...pretty cool.
It’s been a couple years since I did this trail last. It was dirty etc back then. Today I did the round trip from Waterman to the mountain parking lot and back. Just over 10 miles each direction. It was very clean and wonderful the entire way. A small encampment down by the river below the trail but the trail was awesome. Time to return more often.
Distance is good and enjoyable sights
Paved, lots of elevation changes. Stunning scenery as it goes along the canyon. Be sure to keep going past the soccer fields to Pooch Park - we missed it the 1st time and it is the best part!! This trail is well designed and you go under busy roads.
It was hard to find how to get to the. It’s a nice trail- only sporadically scenic, but makes a great corridor along the concrete river embankment
Fantastic views! Many steps and the city has elevators “temporarily “ out of order. Lots of up, down, steps. Worth the effort, the views are spectacular!!!
Excellent trail improvements for a wide variety of users. Most pedestrians are compliant and stay out of the two bike only lanes. Hopefully the city will finish the trail project from 10th street to 6th and put a much needed cross walk between the restroom and the playground. Dan H
In the Friendly city of Whittier,California. The Greenway Trail is a Scenic and Safe destination for the whole Family. Remember to bring water ! 6miles long + since the extensions are finally taking place! Will be connected to La Habra in OC very soon keep in your to do list!
On 06NOV2022 I chose to attempt a 7(ish) mile run along the LA river starting at the trail's terminus in Long Beach. The run took me from Golden Shore up to about Willow. Nearly as soon as the trail turns north from the trailhead the nature of this trail becomes apparent - This is not a safe trail for pedestrians. There are multiple campers, addicts, feces (human and otherwise), and piles of garbage all along the trail. It is an absolute human rights atrocity. Some of the campers have built decent sites off of the trail but most have built castles of garbage and some have built literal fortresses out of the riprap that is used along the river wall. Some of the people along that route were friendly enough and said hello as I passed. Others were not welcoming and a couple were down right threatening including one that tried to block my path and stop my run. This brings up perhaps the most dangerous part - there is no way to escape the trail should trouble happen. There is a high chainlink fence that runs between trail access. If a person finds themselves being chased or assaulted they cannot get away. This portion of this trail needs to be avoided if on foot. There were a lot of cyclists and perhaps this is an option if you are moving quickly, but even then this should only be attempted if part of a large group.
This trail has the potential to be awesome, but the current issues make it downright intimidating and dangerous.
Short trail, multiple traffic lights, thorns punctured both my tires
