Great part of this trail is you are so close to other areas to walk. My wife and I walked from Shell Beach to this trail and back. The central coast is beautiful with a lot to see and do!

Not strenuous at all! I usually see older folks walking this as its easy and short yet runs along the beach great wooden trail is good for strollers and walkers.

Not strenuous, but beautiful! At the north end, this trail joins up with a boardwalk/trail in Pismo Beach that goes all the way to the pier, probably another mile or so. Dogs are welcome -- in fact, on the Pismo portion of the trail there is a human + doggy drinking fountain.
