Browns Creek Bicycle Path undergoing major repaving

Demo 10-28-13

Much needed repair work is finally underway.

Exposed Root

Portions of the Browns Creek Bike Path are closed as the bicycle path undergoes major repair work. Most notably, the path will be receiving new paving. Currently, portions of the path are obstructed by large tree roots and broken pavement that render the path almost un-useable.The repair work will also include the addition of access gates. In the future, these gates will be used to restrict bicyclists, pedestrian and other trail users from accessing the path during heavy storms when the creek overflows the channel.

The Browns Creek Bike Path is a 1.4 mile muilti-use trail that runs along the concrete-lined Browns Creek. The bicycle path starts in Northern Chatsworth near Stoney Point Park and continues south to connect users to the Orange Line Bike Path at the Chatworth Metrolink Station.

This project will be completed in early February, when it is expected to reopen just in time for some nice spring and summer bicycling. Expect to see an update and some more pictures of the renovated path then.

    This is long over due.
    The one thing that would make the Browns Creek Bike Path more assessable would be a connecting bike path from Rinaldi and De Soto to the beginning of the Brows Creek Bike Path at Rinaldi and Independence Ave at Browns Creek. Since Rinaldi does not run between Desoto and Independence a paved bike path along the existing horse trail would provide access from or to the Rinaldi bike lanes that run all the way across the north valley.

    There is a also a lot of sand/gravel that has washed onto the path from adjacent properties. I hope you are planning to mitigate that as well!
