“This is a heavily-wooded canyon trail running alongside a creek.”
— Chris D.
Need to Know
Treking poles will help with any creek riding. Although there are no water fountains on the trail and the creek itself is not potable, water fountains are available in nearby Dimond Park.
The trailhead starts at El Centro. It's an easy ride along a graded dirt path into the woods. The trail narrows significantly before disappearing at points by the old WPA dam. Some creek riding is necessary and may make riding here difficult. Find the trail again beneath the Leimert Bridge. The trail disappears again past the bridge even in the dry season, so creek riding to hike-a-biking is required.
