Coyote Creek Bikeway Master Plan

This plan is subtitled, Coyote Creek Bikeway Project, A Feasibility Assessment and Implementation Guide. This excerpt from the Introduction explains the intent of the plan.

The Coyote Creek Regional Bikeway Project considers the feasibility of a 15-mile section of Coyote Creek  between the City of Brea to the north and its downstream confluence with the San Gabriel River in the City of Long Beach, with a first phase implementation focus on a 5.25 mile reach between Imperial Highway in LaHabra and the confluence. Completion of new segments of a  Coyote Creek Bike Trail would provide over 1 million residents direct bicycle access to the San Gabriel River Trail and coastal access at the mouth of the San Gabriel River….. Cities located directly adjacent to Coyote Creek include five in Los Angeles County … and seven in Orange County …. There are a number of existing master plans that either identify the importance of a regional San Gabriel River trail system that include connections to tributary communities or identify Coyote Creek specifically.

This effort was funded by the Rivers and Mountains Conservancy through a Proposition 40 grant award to Trails4All. The planning team consisted of the California Resource Connection, Inc.; the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition; and  the National Park Service, Rivers, Trails & Conservation Assistance Program. Information and data for this project were collected through various methods including:

  • Exploration of the existing Coyote Creek BikeTrail  and undeveloped rights-of-way.
  • Working Group meetings
  • Working Group tours of each reach of Coyote Creek.
  • One-on-one conversations and meetings with agencies that have land use, transportation, bike trail, and flood management responsibilities on Coyote Creek.
  • Public Meetings to solicit input, needs, and concerns from  residents and the general  public.
  • Map and Plan Development
