Flat, easy and fun. Walk on the promenade or the sand. You can go as far E as Marina Park and W, gee, I think to Solimar. Lots of fun. Easy and relaxing. Take a little windbreaker, especially if you start out after 10 AM, even if you don’t think you’ll need it. I live along the promenade and there’s only maybe 5 days out of an entire year that the wind isn’t blowing in from the west...

Great city. Beautiful. Parking is free in some sections of beach. Empty on weekdays. Train stops right in front of Ventura county fairgrounds.

Beach views but lots of traffic nearby. Ending up at the pier is amazing.

Easy and great view of the ocean and pier. On clear days you can see Anacapa and Santa Cruz Islands! The path is a bit bumpy for a beach cruiser but a really nice jog/walk and still very enjoyable bike ride

This is a really great little walk, especially if you park farther away from the trailhead and run back on the sand!

Wish it was way longer! Love riding my bike over there, but much too short.
