I haven't ridden a bike but walked this trail. Loved it but don't expect bathrooms. There is a little playground halfway and you'll probably want to go earlier when it's not so hot. It's a great morning or evening workout, there are decent hills so...More

We really enjoyed biking on this trail. We saw many walkers. It was so nice to ride our bikes without worrying about cars and the scenery was beautiful.

We began our hike to Avila Beach at the Sycamore Mineral Springs Spa. It’s a comfortable two mile hike each way to Avila Beach with beautiful scenery, creeks, and birds to enjoy along the way
