Great for out and back road biking. Weekdays are best while the weekend is crowded with lots of families and little ones so watch your speed.The evenings have lots of club rides.

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.

Family ride with pull trailer. Good exercising trail. wind could be an issue pulling a kids bike trailer on a windy day against wind, but all is good if its for exercise. Take snacks for kids and water.

Ran this from IB a couple of times. Once up the strand and once on the Chula Vista side. Have not completed full trail. 10.7 and an 11.7 respectively. Nice path.

Silver Strand is a great place for bikers, not as much for hikers like me. The State Beach is very depressing - has tons of trash, plastic bottles and styrene cups. Most beaches belong to private property or the Navy, so not much to see here. Also cars are whizzing past you at top speed - you just don't hear much nature at all.

Again, if you are a biker - go; walkers - there are better places elsewhere.

One of my very favorite bike paths. Long and mostly flat, beautiful views, friendly people.

I usually park down on 13th in CV and do and up and back.

If you're also a geocacher, consider allowing for some extra time, this path is FILLED with TONS of geocahes.

Pretty scenic trail and fun to ride with friends. Good for all levels and all types of bikes. Pretty much no big hills to speak of on the entire trail though.

This is a great bike path for anyone that likes a well maintained bike trail. Not shown on the map is the part of the trail that was freshly completed that goes around the south of the bay towards Chula Vista. I bike from Chula Vista to Coronado on this trail. It is possible to stop at the beach and jump in the water then get back on the trail. At Coronado, a person could cross the island and get on the ferry with his/her bike and bike from San Diego to Chula Vista on another trail. Or a person could bike around San Diego, get back on the ferry and head back. It takes about an hour one way from Chula Vista to Coronado going at a quick pace. If your bike is really nice and are in good shape, I have seen people go a lot quicker!
