This multi-use trail runs north-south, stretching from Azusa to Seal Beach. Though the trail travels through an urban environment, adjacent parks and natural features help diversify the landscape. The San Gabriel Mountains in the distance provide a scenic background for the northern portion of the trail, whereas the ocean serves as a destination point to the south. The trail is a popular bicycle route.

This trail has multiple access points. The northern trailhead can be accessed from the San Gabriel River Parkway in Pico Rivera. From the 60, exist at Rosemead Blvd and head south. Follow signs to stay on Rosemead Blvd for 2.4 miles. Turn left on E. Beverly Blvd. Turn left on San Gabriel Parkway. Trail access will be on the right. See segment Quick Guides for additional access point information.

The access point on Star Street in El Monte has been locked for quite some time. Are there plans to unlock that gate?

Response

Thank you for contacting us.  Durfee/Thompson elementray school locked the gate, but we will check in with them again.

How long is the trail closed (around the 8-9 mile mark) and detour going to be in place?

Response

Thank you for contacting us.  We were just made aware of the closure and advised that work along the bikepath will occur until September 15th.

I'm a cyclist and bike commuter. I have an issue with the tunnel that goes under Whittier Blvd. It is much too narrow for two cyclists to safely go through at the same time while traveling in opposite directions. Also it is way too dark and poorly maintained. The only other option is to avoid the tunnel altogether and take the ramp up to Whittier Blvd. and cross the street to continue onto the trail or access the trails at the adjacent San Gabriel Spreading Grounds. There is no crosswalk at that point. Is there anything that can be done to improve this bicycle crossing?

Response

Thank you for your comment.  LA County Department of Public Works maintains and operates the bikeways.  You can contact them directly through their online portal- select Bike Path under Report a Problem at: https://pw.lacounty.gov/contact/
