apparently communicating with criminals from the entry point and identifying tourists for snags and thistle If people xcross your path intentionally make sure you have a really bright flash light to flash them in the face as a defense mechanism in attempt to have these stalkers wade off. Some have pets that are very aggressive dogs are used as a tool of intimidation so bring spray , small caliber weapons , rubber bullets to protect you and your family after hours. as some attempt to get close for thievery and harassment other than that . The people out here to Skate Bike and Stroll etc are very polite and respectable

It's a nice path - nothing too fancy, but it's great for out-of-town guests as well as locals who want some fresh air. Wide enough for both runners and bikers alike. I highly recommend planning your walk (especially on a Sunday) with a mid-point stopping off at The Misfit on Santa Monica Blvd. It's one of the best places in Santa Monica.

Very nice bike path. Easy to ride and well marked. Rent a bike from one of the local businesses and support them through the Covid Crises. Many of the shops are still closed and may not reopen. The scenery as very nice. Any level of bike rider can do the trail

You could pretty much start anywhere on the bike path and have a great time. Some say it starts in Santa Monica while others will tell you to start in Venice. It makes absolutely no difference where you start. It is 26 miles long and all of it is pretty and over 90% of it has a straight view of the Pacific Ocean. It can get quite crowded and note walkers and skateboarders are not allowed on the bike path, but sometimes they don't know any better so watch out for them. Check online to make sure they are open. The path was open last week. Because of Covid and when it gets too crowded and people are not social distancing they can shut it down. Wear a mask and stay at least six feet from people not in your party. In other words, don't possibly make anyone else sick. It is such a pretty path, it is smooth and safe, not that I would go in the middle of the night, but in the evening it is beautiful. The very early mornings are stunning. There are plenty of places for you to get off the path and get onto a street do you have lunch or snack or just to take a break. You can take the path all the way to Manhattan Beach and back. Have the best time. If you get lost or confused the locals are great and will help you.
