The LARIO Trail is a 28-mile bike and equestrian trail system constructed by the US Army Corps of Engineers. The Trail begins at Peck Road Water Conservation Park in El Monte and continues along the upper Rio Hondo Channel through the Whittier Narrows Dam Recreation Area. Past Whittier Narrows Dam, the LARIO Trail continues to run along the Rio Hondo Channel, passing the Cities of Pico Rivera, Downey, and Bell Gardens, before it joins the lower Los Angeles River. Along the lower Los Angeles River, the LARIO Trail runs along the Cities of Paramount, South Gate, and Long Beach, and ends at the Pacific Ocean. Along its course, the LARIO Trail provides access to several community parks, nearby schools, and other potential recreational sites.
