Owner description: Starting at the Santa Monica pier, this is a popular path for biking, jogging and in-line skating along the Pacific Ocean.

We only rode bout 5 miles of the trail because we kept stopping. But absolutely worth doing. We rented bikes right by the pier and peddled toward Venice beach. Greg way to spend the day though. Lots to see and a fun and easy ride. Can get a bit crowded.

Hire a bike and head off, this is an excellent way to spend the day - one of my favourite things we did while in the US.

Don't try to do your intense 6 or 10 mile run on a Saturday afternoon on the Path. Major pedestrian traffic, roller bladers, walkers, bikers, tandem bikers, unicyclists, and more.... just get your workout done either super early in the morning or on your hotel treadmill.... then go on the Bike Path and enjoy a lazy beach cruiser bike ride or saunter down the path and do some people watching. Great place, lots of fun... but too crowded for a meaningful workout...just saying...

We hired bikes and IDE from Santa Monica to Matin Del Ray, probably only 2/3 miles in goal but it was a great way to see a bit more than you could walking. If you staying in Santa Monica get bikes from the little place Sea Mist at $7 per hour and try it out

The bike path is well worth the 2 hour rental. The rental rates we saw were $7 per hour. I really recommend taking the time to bike from Santa Monica all the way down to Venice and even beyond if you like. Realize that once you hit Washington Blvd in Venice the path disappears. We were hoping to travel further south you have to wind through the city once you reach the pier. We rode a few blocks with our 8 year old but we wanted to be on the coast enjoying the view.
