Very pleasant and leisurely ride on a sunny fall afternoon from Coronado to IB and back. We brought our bikes and found free parking easily by the trailhead. Went out and back around sunset. It took us two hours.

beautiful path, has helped me to get my fitness goals, nice scenery, vegetation, sea breeze, birds and the ocasionally chopter that does not bother me at all.

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.

Easy, flat, very easy to navigate. Took the Bikeway from Coronado all the way to downtown SD. Labelling the whole way-- only difficult piece was along Harbor Dr where there's only a bike lane.

Beautiful beach walk. If you're looking to enjoy some sun and the sounds of the ocean waves, this is the perfect place. Coronado is simply beautiful!

Easy, flat, well maintained path. Perfect for riding and coasting intermittently. My teen daughter says it's relaxing.

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.

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.

Great beach walk at sunset. Bring a light jacket in the evening.

Gorgeous views especially to take out-of-towners that want to see the beach.

Nice little stroll down the beach in Coronado. Definitely worth the walk if you're already in the area.

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.

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.

It's a beautiful route with plenty of things to distract you as you put miles behind you. The people, traffic, ocean, surfers, etc. They all make the time fly.

There are several geocaches along the way, so if you're a geocacher, add a few minutes to allow yourself to enjoy a search or two.
