This multi-use trail runs parallel to Rio Hondo through the San Gabriel Valley. The northern end starts along the reservoir at the Peck Road Water Conservation Park and follows along the channel to Whittier Narrows Recreation Area. Connect to the San Gabriel River Trail here or continue on south to the trail along the lower portion of the Los Angles River. The Rio Hondo River Trail is a popular bicycle route and it is important to be mindful of all trail users.

To access the northern trailhead in El Monte, follow Peck Road to the intersection with Rio Hondo Parkway. Peck Road Water Conservation Park is located on the east side of Peck Road. The trail starts just south of the main parking lot for the park.

Rio Honda bike trail starting at rush st and traveling toward the over pass bridge on garvey st is both sides of the river on the pavement right beside the water way is that public access.? Dose the county control bothsides of the river bed payment where the bikes are who control this.?

Response

Thank you for contacting us.The Department of Parks and Recreation operate and maintain the County’s multi-use trails which are typically unpaved hiking, mountain biking and equestrian trails.  LA County Department of Public Works maintain and operate the County’s paved bikeways.  At Rush Street, the bike path is on the east side of the Rio Hondo River and the multi use-trail is on the west side adjacent to the Whittier Narrows Golf Course at Rush and along the utility road at Garvey.
