This is a beautiful trail and great for walking since there is a lot to see. The trail is narrow in some parts and wider in others. However it can get crowded. It is also a bike trail, so stay to the side when you are walking!

This trail is not only beautiful and scenic but if drops you off right on Avila Beach pier. Thankfully for us, the trail passed right behind our hotel, we just grabbed our bikes and rode it. It passes through the Avila golf course and around a creek. Just a beautiful way to start your morning (At least it was for... More

I believe that Bob Jones bike trail, situated in Avila beach, is one of the best biking trails on the west coast. It is situated right next to a golf course and careens it's way through a scenic forest. We got to experience spectacular views, clean air and lots of natural bounty. Overall, it is a great experience. The bike... More

The trail is level and mostly paved. It runs some 5 miles allthe way into Avila Beach. You will journey thru woods, next to a river, around a golf course, and onto the pier.

My girls and I set out on this beautiful trail for a walk to the beach. We had never been on this trail before and really had no idea how long it would take or where we would end up. For the most part it's shaded with lots of trees. It was a gorgeous day for a walk and there... More

We enjoyed our bike ride on this trail down to the sea. Very scenic ride. We saw beautiful trees, waterways, a nice hotel and cafe. Easy trail and can also be walked.

Tree covered path that seems to go forever. As you travel n the trail, you see apple orchards on one side and Sycamore Springs (for a while) on the other. A super way to be outside for the entire family.

Parking at trailhead. Path is completely paved and easy to walk, cycle or push a baby carriage. Dogs on leach ok. Absolutely beautiful the whole approximately 3 miles following a river ending in Avila beach with all its attractions. Fairly heavy use makes it seem safe and it is away from traffic most of the way. Highly recommended!

Trail is very wide however it is also shared with a random car. Thankfully the drivers drive very slow are are cautious of walkers and bikers. At certain parts of the trail, it is more narrow and you need to keep an eye on younger children riders as there are mini declines and if they don't break well they could... More
