***Santa Anita Wash Trail is closed from Longden Avenue and East Sycamore to the wilderness park for maintenance***
Santa Anita Wash is a 6.32 mile trail that parallels a flood control channel in the cities of Arcadia, El Monte, Monrovia, and unincorporated Los Angeles County. While the trail has a decidedly urban setting, there are still opportunities for wildlife sightings near the Peck Road Water Conservation Park. Additionally, this wide and relatively flat trail makes for an outing that is not difficult and gives locals the option of commuting on a path away from a public street.

Very nice trail used regularly by residents and a few local high school Cross Country teams. The only problem is that the gate north of Sycamore Ave is almost always locked, which doesn't allow access to the most beautiful part of the trail. Please open the gate, so we can enjoy the scenic, natural trail between Sycamore Ave. and Wilderness Park!
L.A. County should be ashamed of this "trail". If you like riding through homeless settlements, looking at trash along the trail, and having to cross streets because the underpasses are full of garbage, glass, and who knows what creepsters, then this is the trail for you! Stick to the Rio Hondo Trail. It's actually maintained. I'm not sure what decade this trail was last maintained.
