Georgetown Walking Trails Map
Whether you are looking for a leisurely stroll or want to get some exercise and walk a few miles - the trails in Georgetown are great. Get outside and enjoy the natural beauty of the San Gabriel River. Today a friend and I chose to walk the long route from Overlook Park out by the dam to Rivery Park by I35 and Home Depot; total walk was 4.5 miles. Georgetown is not flat; the walking trails run along the San Gabriel River and the terrain can get a bit tricky at times.
Must see Georgetown Trail Areas
I highly recommend exploring the area between Bootys Road Park and North Cross Road (you need to park at Bootys Park Road). There is a bird watching area and a star gazing area. The bird watching area has several springs that feed into the river as well as large rocks and mossy areas – just beautiful. The star gazing area has benches with N-S-E-W locators on the ground and marbles in the concrete showing the star constellations.
Helpful Georgetown Walking Trail Hints
Be prepared and know what route to take before heading out. Out by the lake there are several areas that are very steep - I would not want to ride a bike in this area. If you want to have a walk with more down hills than up, start out by the lake and work your way in to town – we were glad we did today! Also note: the water fountains were not working so you might want to take along a water bottle incase you get thirsty.
Along the way you will see Georgetown homes up on the ridges backing to the San Gabriel River; if you are interested in living in Georgetown give me a call.
