Cyclists have been mugged here. More and more unsavory people are coming here. The people that ride here often do not observe the basic rules of the road. Do not ride alone near or after sundown.

This is a wetland preserve, so it's not a place to "visit" but there's a bike path along the creek that is very peaceful and allows a great way to view some of the wildlife without disturbing the habitat

There are parts that are a bit jerky, however it is clean,... More

This is a path for the leisurely walker or biker. It offers some great views of the ocean in Playa del Rey or the Ballona Creek. Go for a leisurely stroll.

This is one of the nicest bike routes in the city, which is not to say its really pretty, I mean, it's still LA. Nice thing is it is free from dangerous interactions with traffic. It's great during the day, and not many people use it because people in LA don't bike or walk very much. As of this writing,... More

A full environmental interactive learning experience. Great fun while you learn. Provides a wonderful outing for the family. Better than an amusement park!
