Bob Jones Trail
View More Videos
The Bob Jones trail is a well-paved county-maintained bike Á walking trail. Beginning on Ontario Road which parallels Highway 101 lies the trailhead for the Bob Jones City to Sea Bike Trail.
The trailhead parking lot is located across Ontario Road. The trail is great for all levels of hiking and biking. It makes for an enjoyable, smooth and (mostly) flat ride with trail benches sprinkled throughout. Dogs are welcome on the trail but please pick up after them!
The Bob Jones Trail wanders next to San Luis Obispo Creek, right behind the Avila Valley Barn fields. It passes the rear of Bellevue-Santa Fe Charter School. You can enjoy walking by the fields and depending on the time of year, you might just catch the the sounds of frogs and flowing water. Hard to believe it's so close to the beach!
From the trailhead parking lot to the end of the Avila Pier is 3.0 miles.
