Hike beside the famous broad beaches of Huntington on this easy, flat, paved multi-use trail. Huntington Beach is famous for its wide, sandy beaches and surfing. It's also a great place for an easy, flat walk along the coastline. The key route is the wide, paved multi-use trail that parallels the coastline. Walking this trail from end to end (with a short side jaunt to the waters edge) adds up to just over four miles. Being paved and entirely flat, it's also popular with runners, bikers, and rollerbladers.Show more
