Schabarum Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Schabarum Regional Park features a green-grass strip extending nearly a mile into the Puente Hills, and lots of steep, brushy hillsides affording some great panoramas of the San Gabriel Valley and the San Gabriel Mountains. You’ll share these views with hawks and ravens who ride the hillside thermals."
--Jerry Schad , Afoot & Afield Los Angeles County (Wilderness Press).
"The Schabarum Scramble is a reasonably challenging mountain bike ride in Schabarum Regional Park, located in Rowland Heights. The route uses dirt trails within the 575-acre park (some sources say 640 acres), which is located on the north side of the Puente Hills. (See Ahwingna Pahe Mahar and Whittier-Workman Hill Workout for other Puente Hills mountain bike rides.) It is a brisk start to the ride, as the trail immediately begins to climb up into the Puente Hills. This trail, which is Schabarum Trail, is part of a loop around the main part of the park. The “main part” is where the park’s recreational facilities and picnic areas are located and where most of the park’s users congregate. You, however, are headed for the remote upper reaches of the park in the Puente Hills."
--Wayne D. Cottrell, Best Bike Rides Los Angeles (Falcon Guides).
"County Supervisor (from 1972-1990) Pete Schabarum is remembered by Schabarum Avenue in Irwindale and Schabarum Senior Center in South El Monte. More surprisingly, to conservationists, are Schabarum Regional Park and Schabarum Trail. Park-lovers were not at the top of his list; he once said of environmentalists: “A lot of them are living out there, in nice rural areas, and they don’t want to be disturbed. I don’t blame them. Why should they give a damn about the guy next door, sitting on acres of undeveloped property that’s doing nothing for him? They don’t care what’s fair. But I do.” For a decade and a half, Otterbein was the name of this regional park; in 1989 it was renamed for Schabarum. At the park office is a Presidential library-like display of Schabarum’s political career, complete with trophies, newspaper clippings and photos and plaques."
