Really easy with pretty surroundings, but not what I would consider a hike. The whole way is paved and there is a country club of some sort that you walk through. Ends at the beach

Perfect biking/running/walking trail leading you from HWY 1 to Avila Beach. The road is well paved, there are plenty of stopping points for food or relaxing and there is ample shade the whole way through.

Perfect bike ride with kids in tow. Brought the trailer for our 4 year old and it was great! We'll maintained path so no problem. Can get a little busy so a bell is helpful.

Excellent biking trail with beautiful surroundings all the way to Avila Beach. Stopped for lunch in Avila Beach and headed back on the trail to burn it off.

Very easy and beautiful path to Avila. While it is peaceful during the week, especially early mornings, it can get very hectic on weekends when everybody is out with strollers, loose children, etc.
