This is a review of the approx. 7 mile part of the trail from it's paved start at Waterman Ave. to the county line. Pluses: easy parking at county Hall of Records building. Well paved path with lots of ups and down and twists to keep it from getting boring. Not crowded. Minuses: one of the more ugly bike trails I have seen. On one side is the sandy river bed filled with lots of trash. On the other, lots of barren, not much to look at land and industrial sites. All in all, I am sure there are nicer part of the Santa Ana trail to ride.

Path is for both runners and bikers, I start pretty early just before sunrise so not many folks on trail then...but by 9a there are so many packs of bikers this is a great trail for biking. It is ok for runners with rest areas for restrooms which is great. If you do long runs like myself 10+ or more no problem in this trail getting
mileage. I began to see quite a few runners/walkers by 8:30-9a. Also by this time the flow of biker groups is pretty steady too but I had no problems as their bike etiquette was great and appreciated. I live in Houston(hot&humid) and weather is great in Ca. for running so I don't think it would be any issues with the lack of trees for shade in this area.

My run started at Chapman near 105 and just parked in nearby apts...I was staying at Disney on S Harbor just about 2 miles from hotel.

Can view path on Mapmyrun search- Santa Ana Trail

This is a biker's dream trail. Goes for miles and miles. Bit of construction to cope with but nothing that terrible. We did 20 miles the first time out on it. Awesome experience. Fairly flat with a few strenuous hills. Can't wait to be out there again.

A nice natural rural area to bring your horse for a ride, take your dogs for a run or a good starting point for a bike ride.

Everything is paved and its only about 28 miles to the beach from Green River. Easy access points, smooth ride, great for training or just cruising.
