My husband and I are new to walking / hiking trails. We loved this trail!! Went from our hotel through nature, a golf course, and ending at the beach!! It was nice and peaceful and we saw many animals. I loved the birds diving in the water while we crossed the bridge at the golf course. Great trail!!

Walk or bike the asphalt two lane trail meanders next to the creek and Avila Golf Course from Avila Hot Springs to the beach town of Avila. About 2 1/2 miles one way with a small uphill about 1/2 was. Great views of golf course and bay. Very kid and dog friendly. Stop in the middle at Avila Bay Club... More

Great paved trails for families kids, bikes, walkers, and joggers Sometimes crowded with fast bikes so just be careful We like to park at the beginning of the trail and walk it all and end up at Fat Cats for breakfast and then walk back.
