When Georgetown pups need to stretch their legs and get some exercise, they need not look further than the San Gabriel River Trails! These scenic trails meander through the city and pass by several parks, making for hours of snifftastic adventures with your furry pal. So leash up your pooch and put on your walking shoes—it's time to hit the San Gabriel River Trails!
The San Gabriel River Trails refer to multiple connected trails that run along the beautiful North and South San Gabriel Rivers. The longest path is the 5.5-mile Randy Morrow Trail, which winds along the north fork of the river. It starts at San Gabriel Park and passes Rivery and Chandler Parks before ending at Booty's Road Park near Lake Georgetown.
To stroll along the south fork of the San Gabriel River, follow the South San Gabriel and Winfred H. Bonner Trails. Spanning 1 mile each, both of these paths provide access to Blue Hole Park, where you'll find a historic swimming hole that never goes dry, even during droughts. Both the north and south trails are accessible from San Gabriel Park, which also contains the 1.6-mile San Gabriel Park Loop.
Enjoy the pawsome scenery during your trek, but keep in mind that you and Fido will be sharing the trails with other hikers and bikers, so be sure to observe proper petiquette by keeping your pooch on a 6-foot leash and cleaning up after them at all times. To guide trail users, the paths are lighted in several areas and marked with animal tracks and recycled plastic mileposts. Water fountains and human restrooms are available in the city parks, while recycled plastic benches can be found along the trails.
For a pawsome adventure with your best friend in Georgetown, you can't go wrong with the San Gabriel River Trails!
