Wandering Thru Whittier (Short)

Distance: 32 miles and 700 feet of elevation gain (mapping software)

This short departs from the long and medium from the very start. It begins by heading southeast by a fairly direct route down to the Whittier Narrows area. Here it enters the San Gabriel River Trail and takes this north all the way to the Santa Fe Dam. It then heads back west to the start using Longden Ave most of the way. After a small detour for lunch, it completes the ride back to Alhambra. The later portion of this route is the same as the return on the Long Route. As you can see by the profile, there are only a few small hills. The first portion of the ride is gently downhill and the return is gently uphill.
