We had a nice walk but it is a long one if you have to do the return trip. I’m no longer young, but I would say the walk/ride is easy.

We had a glorious Day on an electric bike from Pedego. The trail was fabulous taking us through a golf course and a beautiful tour of the foliage at this time of year.

Easy walk/hike that takes you from Avila Beach to the Avila Farm house. You might need to uber back if you buy too much produce.

I haven't ridden a bike but walked this trail. Loved it but don't expect bathrooms. There is a little playground halfway and you'll probably want to go earlier when it's not so hot. It's a great morning or evening workout, there are decent hills so...More

The Bob Jones walk/bike trail starts at the 101 and ends at Avila Beach and is a "Must do!" It meanders alongside the river underneath the trees, courses through a golf course, over the river and is very pleasant. Don't know why anyone would bike...More

It's a great start to the ride in Avila Beach. We rented E-Bikes from Pedego for the whole family and everyone had fun. The electric assist motor can be used as much or as little as you'd like in bikes of different styles... More
