The Good Water Loop is a 26.9 mile loop trail around the San Gabriel River through Russel Park and Sawyer Park.

This trail is open year-round, and dogs are allowed to use this trail if kept on leash. The trail offers scenic views of the 'lake,' along with gorgeous wild flowers in the spring. 

A recommended route is to start at Cedar Breaks and to hike about 15 miles to Walnut Creek primitive camp site. This camp site offers plenty of good spots to pitch a tent and a small beach for lake access.
