If you enjoy beach combing this is the place for you. Lots of variety with the scenery for anyone who wants a long hike (14 miles round trip) of moderate difficulty with incredible views. I highly recommend this hike.

We use the trail outside Chautaqua Lodge and it is a wonderful night time walk, especially on super dark nights. Easy to find, easy to navigate, flat and non-strenuous. Great for the older doggies and those of use who could stand to hit the gym.

This trail is nicely maintained and very pleasant for walking, with a good view of the water, and plenty of informational signs along the way. We enjoyed using it.

This is a well-maintained paved trail (and boardwalk in part), positioned near but not right next to the beach, with beautiful views of grass-covered dunes, scrub trees and wildlife including deer and bald eagles. As someone who once lived in Southern California, where the wealthy...More

We stayed at The Breakers and they gave us bikes. This is a great trail and paved and not many hills. Great view of the ocean and trees.

Probably nothing special for hard-core bikers, but perfect for young families and us older folks. One of our favorite biking trails.

Yes, for the northern end of the trail is paved. The far south end is a bit steep and graveled, so it may be to much for those type of bikes.
