Coastal Trail

It was very pretty. We got to see the golf course. We went down to the beach. It was an easy path to walk on.

We have ridden our bikes on this for years and love doing it. It is mostly very flat and safe. Once you get a bit to the south end it becomes rougher -- but nothing a mountain bike can't handle. Loads of fun!

Love walking my puppies on the trail! Great for running, biking and just sitting and watching the ocean! Can't beat our trail!

This trail goes for a few miles, but my dog was only able to do about half the way. It is flat and easy to walk with the ocean in front of you.

Definitely take the time to visit if you have the chance. There is cheap metered parking, picnic tables and benches to enjoy the scenery. The coastal views are stunning and there is plenty of flora to enjoy. Loved seeing the sea twisted cypress and cliffs. Lovely spot for hiking, biking, or running your dog. The beach below is pretty, but... More

It used to be much nicer. The environmental weenies have Laid down gravel on one of the major trails and it's quite uncomfortable to walk on now, unless you have on a rather sturdy shoe. Once you make it pass the trees the dirt trail picks up again very comfortable and lots of nice trails to walk on. Great views... More

You can walk as much or as little as you choose. Stop for a cocktail, coffee, or a meal, or just keep walking, running, biking.

THis might have been a bit much if the sun was out in full force, but on a slighly over cast day it is an amazingly enjoyable stroll to take in sea life.

This is a great trail, although a bridge has been out for many months so one cannot go as long as one might want to walk. Great views and bathrooms along the way. We like to do this before having a good lunch at the beach.
