Bike Paths: Low-Hanging Fruit

With very little effort, miles of bike paths could be opened along a number of creeks in the San Gabriel Valley.  These waterways usually already possess rights-of-way that can easily be put to use to provide off-street bicycle and multi-use paths throughout the area.  This is the first in a series of posts that will explore the locations of potential bike paths in the area.  This week’s candidate: Santa Anita wash, north Arcadia.  This site is particularly well suited, as the existing path needs only minimal modification at this grade crossing, and none at the grade crossing at Foothill Blvd.
