The Coronado portion is short but gorgeous. Perfect way to take in the island. Many great photo opportunities on the trail with magnificent perspectives of the San Diego downtown skyline as a backdrop, or the historic Hotel Del Coronado and it's pretty beach. The Bayshore (or Silver Strand) Bikeway sets out from Coronado Ferry Landing and the Ferry Landing Marketplace. Bring your bike over on the San DiegoCoronado Ferry or rent one at the Bikes & Beyond shop. Head south along the palm tree-lined path past some upscale restaurants and trailside cafes. You can take in wonderful views of the downtown San Diego skyline as you skirt Tidelands Park, with its grassy fields and playground.

It's more of a stroll than a hike. The views are gorgeous and there are several spots that you can stop and swim at a little beach. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was heavily crowded. You can rent those bike carts that allow four passengers to pedal and the path was littered with them, and they rang the bell provided them and yelled and hollered at walkers and cyclists to move instead of sharing the road. Very annoying and aggressive at times.

I think this would be a lovely sunset stroll.

Did this at night in the rain. Was super beautiful. Across the bay is you can see the San Diego downtown skyline all lit up.

Great place to walk with kids, rollerblade, or watch the water traffic. Playgrounds, restaurants, and the ferry are all along this paved path.

Trail is well-designated, took the ferry to Coronado and road around silverstrand into Chula Vista and back to embarcadero. Not all of the trail is all that scenic but it's a nice ride to take at least once to see many different areas of San Diego from Coronado to Chula Vista.

Walking this paved path provides you with wonderful views across the San Diego bay: the downtown skyline, the port of SD, the convention center, the naval shipyards, the Coronado Bay Bridge and more. The path is wide enough that sharing with other walkers and bikers is comfortable. Start your hike by riding the ferry from the Broadway Pier or Convention Center to the Coronado ferry landing and finish up at the Coronado Golf Course. As sightseeing walk go, it's hard to do much better than this hike.

Rented a four person bike and had a blast with the kids. Beautiful views of San Diego across the bay and the best view of downtown at night.
