We rode our bike along the trail and absolutely loved it! Sat on a bench in the shade along the river and felt like we were back in time.

We started the trail at Sycamore Springs and took it all the way to Avila Beach. Just the right amount of walking. The amount of shade and sun was perfect, a little breeze and the scenery was perfect! highly recommend it!

It's a great place to get a walk in if your not into walking on the beach. And you meet very friendly people and their dogs :)

This wonderful walking/biking trail is awesome. It takes you right down to Avila Beach downtown. We saw the most amazing wildlife on this adorable route. Highly recommend!

Great paved trail starting at a dirt parking lot near 101 and ending in Avila Beach. Easy riding or walking and the scenery is fantastic along the way (I think it is around 3 miles one way). Great for young and old-bikes or walking-no cars...More

We always enjoy the Bob Jones Trail. It's an easy path that allows for wheelchairs (my mother-in-law) as well as strollers & bikes. Plant species are identified with discrete boards. And it outlets at Avila Beach. Wonderful.
