The Bob Jones Trail

A friend asked me yesterday how long the Bob Jones trail was and I couldn’t give her an immediate response. The thing is, I should know this. We have gone on this trail several times. Walking. Strollering. Running. And Biking (with kids). So, I had to get to the bottom of this simple question.

Bob Jones Trail:
Distance: 2.3 Miles from the Bike Trail Start Parking Lot off Ontario Road to Avila Beach. This MAP says it all.
Trail Type: The trail is paved the entire way from the parking lot to the beach. It is wide and open for bikes, pedestrians and strollers. Lots of strollers. Lots more info here.

If you are looking for a family friendly paved trail, you’ve got to try this one. There are several benches along the way to rest and the kids love ending at the beach to play. Your kids will thank you.
