The trail runs from Santa Monica Pier to Venice Beach, with bike and rollerblade rentals on either end. You'll share the road with motorists on portions of the path, so ride or skate carefully, and wear a helmet. Consider bringing a bottle of water, sunscreen, and a hat.

  • I was so happily surprised at how clean and well maintained the path is. We were walking, not riding, and there is plenty of room for all. No garbage, no dog poop, safe...I don't know who...

  • This is a very good bike path, I'm not sure where it starts or ends but I did between Marina Del Rey and just north of Santa Monica. Lots to look at along the way, pretty good lane discipline from...

  • Beach cruiser paradise! Rent or bring your own bike... it's a breeze riding from Temescal to the Marina. Enjoy some good eats, stop along the way to people watch on the Santa Monica Pier or go for a swing! If you're trying to escape the heat of the city/Valley, you can't go wrong riding along PCH. Always a fun time and no parking fees either! Bring your bike lock, sunscreen, bathing suit, beach towel and enjoy the ride! 🚴🏾
  • I loved starting from Will Rogers Beach, was amazing great views, you can ride the trail to Venice and Santa Monica pier and back without hitting any main roads
