Socal - Los Angeles County - Duarte NickNames: #SanGabrielRiverTrail
Take 605 fwy to the end, to Hungtington Rd. Turn right (east) then turn left on Encanto Parkway. Keep on going until you see Duarte Historical Museum and Park. Parking is free, and just cross the street and the bridge over the San Gabriel River and you will hit the paved bike trail. You can only ride toward the mountain for few miles, but if you go the other way, can you go for a while. It will merge with the trail coming from the Santa Fe Dam. The best part is that the parking is free at the park and the park has nice restroom and play area for kids and adults. Tennis court, basket ball hoop and nice grassy area.
Path is safe and is an easy ride. Perfect for quick workout rides. Bike traffic rises on early weekend mornings by large group 'roadie' rides so prepare to share the trail. One end terminates to a turn around point in Azusa and the other end in Long Beach.
Mountain bikers can take the dirt trails flanking the bike path; some run along it, some takes you inside the Santa Fe Dam. Bring a flat kit though, it can be a long walk back with a flat.
As mentioned, park at Encanto Park / Duarte Historical Museum if you dont want to pay for parking inside the Santa Fe Dam Rec Area
