Huntington Beach is famous for its wide, sandy beaches and surfing. It's also a great place for an easy, flat walk along the coastline.
The key route is the wide, paved multi-use trail that parallels the coastline. Walking this trail from end to end (with a short side jaunt to the waters edge) adds up to just over four miles. Being paved and entirely flat, it's also popular with runners, bikers, and rollerbladers.
This beach gets crowded during the summer. Take your time, stay to the right and watch out for others. Or avoid the crowds and visit in the off season.
If you plan to visit this beach or any other California State parks eight times or more, it's worth getting an annual Day Use Pass.
This trail extends beyond Huntington SB, to Long Beach in the north and Balboa Pier in Newport Beach in the south. Try this on blades or a bike!
This is the turnaround point for the portion of the trail in Huntington State Beach. If you want a longer walk, you can continue north through the City Beach to the pier and downtown area where there are shops and restaurants.
