A paved walk way shared with cars, bikes and golf carts that meanders along the river. Goes from 1st st in Avila Beach to US-101. Nice signage pointing out flora. Wildlife seen on river. Passes a neat market/cafe for a break.

Have walked this great trail very often. It wends through lovely woods and fields to the beach at Avila. A stop for lunch at the Woodstone Market makes it a perfect outing

Great for families as it is mostly flat, scenic and lots of places to stop for a picnic. You can choose your starting point and distance easily.
