Flat well groomed trail, most of which is packed decomposed granite. Very easy coastline trail that is busy most daylight hours. Bikers, runners, walkers, dogs on leashes. Not a peaceful walk by any means, but on warm days, the coastal breeze keeps you cooler than inland. Trains run parallel and frequently to the trail. Keep your eyes open, some bikers are less than considerate, as are some dog owners, leaving do-do on the path. Several entrances have paid parking and a few areas have free street parking.
