I work in downtown LA and live in Long Beach. In the past the LA River Trail didn't seem to go past Rio Hondo. Looking at Google Maps aerial photos it looks like it does extend farther on the West side of LA River.
Other than just riding it to find out (Duh!), can anyone provide recent experience on the Lario trail or generally bike commuting from Long Beach to downtown (1st & Main!) in LA? Everytime I've tried to plot it out- and even drove some possible routes, it seemed like a lot of very industrial riding.
