A trail that follows the curve of Santa Monica Bay's shore, 26-Mile Bike Path surges with cyclists and rollerbladers throughout the year. The trail runs from Santa Monica Pier to Venice Beach, with bike and rollerblade rentals on either end. You'll share the road with motorists on portions of the path, so ride or skate carefully, and wear a helmet. Consider bringing a bottle of water, sunscreen, and a hat. You can stop to refuel at your choice of restaurants before heading back. Put26-Mile Bike Path into our Santa Monica trip tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Perfect place to walk, skate, bike or whatever. Enjoy the beach and sunny weather. Plenty of business renting anything you need.

  • I was so happily surprised at how clean and well maintained the path is. We were walking, not riding, and there is plenty of room for all. No garbage, no dog poop, safe...I don't know who...

  • Beach cruiser paradise! Rent or bring your own bike... it's a breeze riding from Temescal to the Marina. Enjoy some good eats, stop along the way to people watch on the Santa Monica Pier or go for a swing! If you're trying to escape the heat of the city/Valley, you can't go wrong riding along PCH. Always a fun time and no parking fees either! Bring your bike lock, sunscreen, bathing suit, beach towel and enjoy the ride! 🚴🏾
  • I loved starting from Will Rogers Beach, was amazing great views, you can ride the trail to Venice and Santa Monica pier and back without hitting any main roads
