I love being able to safely ride my bike along the ocean all the way from Manhattan Beach up to Marina del Rey and then onward to the Ballona Creek trail. It gives such a sense of freedom to be away from the insane traffic, knowing that my doggy can ride in my bike basket with no worries of crazy... More

I usually begin this ride from Culver City, then end up in Marina Del Rey. From the beginning of the path in Culver City, there is ample amount of parking at the MEtro stop on Jefferson and La Cienega. Then the ride to the marina is just awesome. There are parts that are a bit jerky, however it is clean,... More

This is a path for the leisurely walker or biker. It offers some great views of the ocean in Playa del Rey or the Ballona Creek. Go for a leisurely stroll.

This is one of the nicest bike routes in the city, which is not to say its really pretty, I mean, it's still LA. Nice thing is it is free from dangerous interactions with traffic. It's great during the day, and not many people use it because people in LA don't bike or walk very much. As of this writing,... More

Beautiful homes and views of the oceon outside of the Marina. Not much activity, but great for walking on the beach and watching the sunset.

A full environmental interactive learning experience. Great fun while you learn. Provides a wonderful outing for the family. Better than an amusement park!

People have been attacked along this route. Carry a gun. The scenery is nothing impressive. Would not recommend this route

The area around Ballona Creek is limited and it is not a site that I would tell tourists to be sure to see. It is a small outdoor area that does not offer a lot to see.

I'm not a super nature lover, so I think it is just ok. I prefer Malibu or Santa Monica Mountains for my nature loving moments when I have them. It is an estuary filled with wild life and is often in need of crew cleaning due to illegal dumping which is a shame. Efforts are underway to rehabilitate wildlife. Call... More
