Bob Jones Trail is a 5-mile round trip paved path that takes you from San Luis Obispo to the pristine coastal town of Avila Beach. The path follows the San Luis Obispo Creek and winds through the Avila Golf course.

Easily accessible, fairly flat, paved trail (either from park and ride lot or at the end of Avila Beach from First Street). There are some uneven spots and a few uphill/downhill sections - notably in the golf course area, but it's easy riding - definitely...More

This is a wide trail and in good condition for both bike riders and hikers. It is scenic and borders a creek. The ending point is the beach with lots of great options for lunch!

We had a nice walk but it is a long one if you have to do the return trip. I’m no longer young, but I would say the walk/ride is easy.

We had a glorious Day on an electric bike from Pedego. The trail was fabulous taking us through a golf course and a beautiful tour of the foliage at this time of year.

Easy walk/hike that takes you from Avila Beach to the Avila Farm house. You might need to uber back if you buy too much produce.

It's a great start to the ride in Avila Beach. We rented E-Bikes from Pedego for the whole family and everyone had fun. The electric assist motor can be used as much or as little as you'd like in bikes of different styles... More
