The Avila Village Inn offered bikes for 2 hours for free and we decided to take the Bob Jones Trail. We did the whole trail and ended in Avila Beach for coffee before heading back to the Inn. Great fun!

This trail was very well maintained--a beautiful ride. And plenty to see along the way -- we saw a Blue Heron who seems to live there--since we saw him on several occasions. Mostly walkers and bicyclists although cars are permitted in certain spots.

An easy walk for anyone including disabilities. Much of it shaded. It follows a creek. Shared path with bikes, strollers, runners, dog walkers, even a car or two. Interpretive signage. I had lunch at the wood stone market.

This is an amazing, easy, flat and well used paved path. Only downside would be the occasional fast bike rider sneaking up on you. I say sneaking---- if you are chatting with your walking partner it may appear as if they magically are behind you....More

During the peak summer months, one might think they were in a different state, so much is the foliage in sections of this hike. The exposed parts of the trail can be hot during some months, too, but if a marine breeze is sweeping through,...More
