Smooth bike path that goes from Marina del Rey to Culver City alongside a creek. Completely away from any cars, it's a great beginner path with some descents and inclines.

Great Trail. 100% protected. Felt pretty safe while on the Trail. Beautiful once it gets closer to the ocean.

Best. Bike path. Ever! I love starting in Culver City and riding well into Manhatten Beach! Make sure you keep your eyes open as bikers can come by when you least expect it! So rewarding!

Good sweat. Loved everything about the road. At first I was alittle scared but it's freaken worth it.

We use this path weekly to add on some mileage and to head towards the beach in a safer way (out of traffic). Be vigilant as I have heard stories of people being attacked, but I've never felt threatened even on my rides alone. It isn't until around the time you ride under the 90 that you really start to see the beauty in the area. It's not all cement. I've seen incredible birds that I didn't even know lived in this area (cranes, pelicans, etc). It is gorgeous at sunset. :)

We ride all the way down Ballona from Culver City down to the end of the beach bike path in Rancho Palos Verdes and then go back on the road and do hill training.

Notice to walkers, please remember that this is primarily a bike path. Be courteous. Where there are walkways for walking pedestrians, please use them. Be aware. Listen for approaching cyclists. Let's share the path in a safe, harmonious way.

it runs alongside a creek that at first seems somewhat nice but then begins to look more like a sewer. i saw some pelicans and other interesting water birds towards the beginning, but as you continue, there's less wildlife and it's less scenic. this was a good beginner cyclist trail since it is restricted to bikes and no cars and is a smooth ride with some descends and inclines.
