“Great stretch ”

Los Angeles River Bike Path
Reviewed 19 June 2015 via mobile

This review is for the path that starts in Cypress Park, goes through Elysian Valley and stops in Griffith Park. It's a great ride, relatively flat and a mostly well maintained path. I ride the river several times a week and routinely see ducks, cranes and blue herons. I also see homeless people pretty regularly but have never had any altercations or problems with them.
There are several entrance/ exit points and it's fun to get off of the path and explore, especially in Griffith Park. With a little creativity, you can stretch the 7 mile River path into an easy 15-20 mile loop.
Share the path with other bikers, walkers and joggers and have fun!

The bike path is awesome. Paved mostly flat and wildly scenic. We wanted to make this a little vacation and planned on stopping to eat on the path. The Frog Spot was closed and we had to make our way into Atwater. There is no easy place to do this but we figured it out at Bon Vivant. No place to secure bikes we had to keep a close eye. We entered on Gilroy Street but parked at Coco's bike rentals (not cheap) but lot's of fun. Yes, there are serious bikers and they go fast but there are also little parks everywhere to picnic.

Who knew this little bit of the countryside is in the middle of LA? Very nice path, easy access form surface streets all along the trail. Even a couple of places for food or coffee along the way. We experienced no problem with other riders. It would be nicer if you weren't along the Interstate 5 for part of the ride, but the South half is quiet and bucolic...diverse birds to watch and just a pleasant 15 mile round trip.

I used to walk, run and ride a beach cruiser bike on this path. Too many high speed bikers on the path and they do not slow down for anything. Very Dangerous.
