Bob Jones City to the Sea Trail

Pick up a delicious picnic lunch from the Avila Valley Barn before hopping on the 2.5-mile Bob Jones City to the Sea Trail (which starts right behind the farm) in San Luis Obispo, CA. The paved, dog-friendly trail winds its way through the Avila Valley, following a beautiful stream all the way to Avila Beach. Either of the town’s two off-leash dog beaches (Olde Port Beach and Fisherman’s Beach) can be accessed by walking a half mile past the trail’s official end in the somewhat narrow bike line on Avila Beach Drive.

    Nice Shaded Trail!

    I took my dog during the weekend and the place was a bit busy with bikes, but’s lo of them were respectful of those walking with dogs. Overall me and my pup really enjoyed it! There are no views of the ocean but there are nice views of mountains and a river -

    Wonderful Trail

    This is a great paved trail that ends at the beach. There is plenty of shade. The beach however has “No dogs allowed “ signs on it. So do not expect a beach romp. But if you’re looking for an easy long paved trail, this one is nice.

    Great walk

    Great walk - we started at the parking lot and walked to Avila beach. Pretty trail (mostly shaded).

    Beautiful, not too difficult trail with lots of wildlife to view. However, it is crowded and frequently used by bikes, so it may be hard to let them pass, especially if your dog is a sniffer.

    nice paved trail

    There is a park-n-ride parking lot also designated for the trail right across from the trail head. It is a nice trail only partially shaded in some spots. It is a pretty walk in trees and along some nice houses. It is a busy trail. Only four bones because it is paved and I prefer the dirt.
