Action: Complete the LA River Trail so that there is a continuous route along the entire river, and encourage future routes on both sides where feasible.
As a recreation and transportation route, the LA River Trail serves multiple purposes.
However, it has yet to live up to its full potential because it is fragmented. A continuous route along the entire river would serve as a major bicycle and pedestrian artery through LA County, offering short- and long-distance routes for cyclists and pedestrians that are protected from vehicular traffic. Not only would the trail itself provide a new experience, but the connections it would make between parks, trails, job centers, and other destinations would make an abundance of nearby experiences more accessible to those who could access the river.
