Nice trail to escape the traffic and crowds. A little busier then when I used it a coule years ago. Really ideal on the weekdays, weekends are a little crowded.

Easy trail and well maintained. No steps and an easy hike. Lots of parking at the Pier. Runs along coast and allows dogs and bikes.

The San Clemente trail is one of the treasures of the Pacific Coast. You start at North Beach and you walk the trail as it winds through beautiful Vistas. The train tracks are next to you and trains come through on a regular basis. If you have young kids they get a close-up view of the trains. There are houses to view on the cliff, ocean panoramas at every turn. You can veer off for a walk down the pier or do some shopping on the main drag. You can ride your bike as well but please mind the "walk your bike" signs at certain points. Great walk/run/bike!

such a nice walk! I love to walk/run on this trail from calafia beach all the way up past the pier. they've done a really nice job with the beach trail. people walk their dogs here too. i find it a little too crowded to ride bikes here, but it might be okay on a weekday

While camping at San Onofre State Park bluffs, drove up to bike along the trail. Renting from Bicycles San Clemente near the Metrolink in No. beach was a breeze and in about 10 minutes we were headed South toward the pier and viewing beaches, surfers, turquoise waters off this pretty coastal area. The trail is pretty sandy in places but no bad potholes and only a few places (near pier and other bridges) where you needed to walk bikes. the trail is planted with succulents and flowering shrubs, and you share with walkers, joggers but it's a great recreation area and just steps to the pier, water, exercise areas with chin-up bars, play areas with swings. It's a wonderful trail I will definitely use again anytime I'm in the area.
