Review

Intro

This bike path cruises along the creek for almost 8 miles from Culver City to the coast at Marina Del Rey. This paved path has a convenient connection to the Metro Rail system for those wanting to ride to the beach from further locations in the city. 

What Makes It Great

There are beautiful views of the Ballona Wetlands, Baldwin Hills, the Santa Monica Mountains, and the urban city landscape along the way. This is a great path from inner city L.A. neighborhoods to the beach; enjoy the breeze on this classic Los Angeles route.

Who is Going to Love It

This path is an escape from the city or a path into it! It can get a bit crowded, but it's a nice access route for those wanting to avoid a car commute to the beaches.
