Bike Trails Galore (Shorter Short)

Distance: 24 miles and 300 feet of elevation gain (mapping software)

I believe this shorter short route is the remnant of a “beginner’s ride” program a number of years ago. Although it rides the river trails, it is different from the other 3 routes. It starts out by heading south on the San Gabriel River (the others go north). It continues south to where it joins the Coyote Creek Trail. It takes the Coyote Creek trail back north a few miles to Cerritos. Here it gets off and takes streets west back over to the San Gabriel River. It stops for lunch in this area. Once back at the San Gabriel River, it takes this back to the start.  The route is very flat, as you can see by the profile below.
