Great hike with some pretty cool views. Did this hike with a friend in about 2hrs 20mins. Definitely start on Arteique Rd and end on Chaney Dr. It was a little confusing to find the trail in the beginning but definitely follow the map and you'll get a good leg workout in.

While the tip part of the hike is amazing a very large percentage of it is on roads. Just something people should be aware of.

Pointed out a couple things I would have missed.

Stayed in a hotel by the pier for a month for work and walked miles and miles of the surrounding beaches and bike routes. Great month...

As easy as it gets, but that doesn't make it any less beautiful. Almost always crowded, so go before 8am if you want a peaceful run with few people!

This is a paved flat trail with generally a lot of traffic. Maybe not a locals favorite but definitely I nice low key thing to do when Visitors come into town. It's cool to go from Santa Monica to Venice and see all the artsy crazy that comes with that. I've lived here for about 7 years and have rented a bike to ride along this trail maybe 3 times?

tough uphill climb. no breaks. very challenging. wonderful views

Amazing hike. We took the back roads coming from the 101fwy. The hike is moderate but its worth it due to all the amazing thing's you will see. The sun is unforgiving so pack plenty of water and always remember a snack.

There are a lot of option, but it is a tough trail with little to no shade. I see some crazy bikers going up the hill and can't imagine how it's possible. Great workout , good views, but pretty crowded and not very diverse views
