    Yes. You climb up the dam in either direction (one way is paved trail and the other way is rock/dirt). The San Gabriel trail goes through a neighborhood around mile 3 or 4 then continues on to the dam and you can get to LGT from there via cedar breaks or overlook park.

    Is the neighborhood part pretty obvious? Only have a couple hours tomorrow.

    Parked at El Monumento and started making my way to LGT. Took the paved path up to the dam. That little section off of Bootys Crossing Road was "steep". Quotes because I think that's the steepest pitch I've climbed since being back in Austin. Did that a couple times for good measure. Going down was sketch given how narrow it was. Popped out on the dam, got all sorts of turned around on some hiking trail that I thought was going to lead me back to Bootys Crossing Road, then flatted. Good times. Made better because my Co2 chuck was mysteriously missing. So I had to use a tiny hand pump. Better than nothing. Made my way to the Cedar Breaks Park entrance and wasn't sure where to go, and was running out of time. So I turned around and headed back to El Monumento.

    If I enter through Cedar Breaks Park, is there a fee?

    No fee for bikes. You would enter cedar breaks and take the first left into the circular parking lot and you should see the trail head.

    No fee for a vehicle either if you're just biking and park there in the trailhead lot.

    Rode LGT loop from Cedar Breaks and added the hike-n-bike to San Gabriel park. That was 39.2 miles per Strava. It was fun! I plan to do that again if I have the time.

    From Rivery up through Booty's Road Park, if you combine the disc golf course with the little section of hidden 'trail' on the north side of the trail after Northcross Rd/ River Rd, you can avoid a good chunk of the paved trail. Under 35, you can take the 'maintenance road' that pops out up by KFC, and take that road (Morrow) over to San Gab Park.

    Ohh, there's a hidden "trail"?
    Next time, I'll have to be on the lookout for it
