Lengthy strand walk that connects up the beach cities: El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, and Hermosa Beach. You can add an extension to Redondo Beach and end at their whale mural at their waterfront power station.

Rode all the way to Redondo. The trail is in good condition and the view is gorgeous both ways.

We rode from Hermosa Beach to Dockweiler Beach. There were only 2 inclines. It’s a wonderful, beautiful, and pretty easy ride.

We hiked the bike trail starting at Redondo Beach Harbor to the end of the fence line of the El Segundo Power Plant. Mostly just flat, it's a great path for walking. Lots of people watching, things to see and stop at along the way. You'll be in competition with many bikes, skate boarders and rollerbladers. I felt safer walking against traffic so I can see who's coming at one point. Get there early on the weekends parking is tight.

The bike path was in terrible shape due to sand. The worst condition for a long time. I had to get off of the beach bike trail and take the highway.

Beautiful walk. I would recommend going a little further and walking to the Hermosa Beach Pier, which adds a little more than a mile to the walk overall.
