Brown Creek
Least scenic bike path of the lot!

Easy ride; no hills. Total length about 2 miles. No parks, just a couple of small rest areas; the neighborhood is part light industrial and commercial, and part residential, with horses, dogs, etc. Frankly, it’s a dry, dusty, ugly, typical Los Angeles style, concrete-lined ditch, and not very highly recommended, unless you’re into gangs and graffitti. (But see below, for a contra view.)

The picture speaks for itself.(It does not say "welcome")

The “gangs and grafitti” comments are overdone. I ride this path at night regularly, and it feels quite safe. Carry enough light to see your way since it can be pretty dark. Okay! Okay! It’s not much to look at in the daytime, but this path has a lot of potential. It should be extended along the existing flood control channel through the west valley to the Sepulveda basin area as an alternative to quiet through streets like Chase or Hart for east/west bike transit. . . .
