“A well-maintained trail and boardwalk that showcases one of the best beaches in Southern California.”— Jason Fincher
South Trailhead: Exit the I-5 on Ave Calafia. Head west for 0.2 miles. Ave Calafia ends at the parking area.
This is a fast, flat course that showcases one of the most scenic beaches in the area. The trail is a combination of hard-packed sand and boardwalk. There a couple of small paved sections. This trail gets very busy on the weekends and is best hit early in the morning. There are several other parking / access points along the trail.
