san dimas to SART connector question

Hi there, was going to ride from San Dimas down to the SART to huntington and back.. I know how to get down to the OC from San Dimas, and I was thinking of taking Lambert to Kramer down to the trail.. I can't remember if there is a way to hop onto the trail from Kramer/Glassell. Any other suggestions from once I start heading south from Brea Cyn to hit the river trail?

Through Brea Cyn, you could make your way to StateCollege then catch it at Orangewood near the Stadium.

I've gone through Kraemer but that was via CarbonCyn direction.

Yes, there is an entrance at Kramer to the trail, near the big ugly yellow orange hotel!

Does Brea Cyn road go through? I thought it was closed.

I'm curious to know about this too, since I'll be starting from the Round Table Pizza in Brea on my GMR/GRR assault on Friday.
I used to work at that Round Table when I was 18, right before I joined the killbot factory.
Can't find anything about it being closed online, am really looking forward to riding this route again after nearly a quarter of a century!

Anybody know for certain about Brea Canyon?

State College isn't the most pleasant ride with all the stoplights & traffic, but it's survivable in the early morning.

I've never riddenSt College but after driving it. it looks much wider than Kraemer. K is narrow and lots of semi traffic during the week, not sure about weekends, been a while. I do know Carbon Cyn with all the new developement is very heavy compared to what it used to be!

A coupel weeks back, I ran into JTCastillo on the trail. He was with a couple of buddies. He mentioned they rode through Brea Cyn to the coast and back.

Why would it be closed? Construction?

Kraemer from Lambert is not bad, though it does go to three lanes at certain places, like just south of Lambert, and just north of Crowther. Lambert is probably worse than Kraemer, as it is three lanes from just east of Palm all the way to Kraemer, and very busy at times. Birch street, which is south of Lambert and runs parallel, is possibly better. It will take you all the way to Kraemer from Brea Boulevard, and is not as busy as Lambert. Once Birch crosses Kraemer, the traffic diminishes quite a bit, and you can easily find your way.

You can see where bike lanes are marked from this map.

Thank you for all the help! I'll check and see if brea cyn is closed for tomorrow.. shouldnt be a problem... If it is, I'll just head on through chino over to carbon cyn. Zippy, thank you for the birch suggestion... I completely forgot about that street! Thank you for the MMR route as well! Hopefully the weather holds up for tomorrow... saw some cloudy cover today and I didnt like it one bit!

I just rode from Diamond Bar through Carbon Cyn today. We took Brea Blvd/Canyon from Central Ave to Pathfinder. Road fully open in this section.

Thanks for that info... from the 57 where what looks like Brea Canyon Rd/Brea Blvd has a gate across it. how ever, I may be mistaking it for one of the service roads up to the oil derricks. One of my lunch loops takes me up Brea Blvd but I always turn west at Lambert. I think I'll try Brea Cyn for a change.
