Hiking and Biking Trails near Downey

At times it may feel that you’re overwhelmed with the amount of work you have to do, causing you to stress and make little time for yourself.

Rather than neglecting your health and wellbeing, why not spend a couple hours this weekend exploring the outdoors of Downey.

No, not the residential areas, but rather a trail.

One such local trail that you’ll find is the San Gabriel River Trail. The trail extends from the San Gabriel Mountains to the Pacific Ocean. This trail connects to several others, acting as the main backbone for the trail system in the region.

The landscape is diverse, as the trail will bring you to residential and commercial areas, as well as views of the surrounding mountains. The trail follows the course of the river, and brings you to the Santa Fe Dam and Whittier Narrows.
