Shoreline Pedestrian/Bicycle Path

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Shoreline Pedestrian/Bicycle Path is a scenic multipurpose trail that runs from the tip of the breakwater opposite Island Grissom at the Long Beach Shoreline Marina to Long Beach's Belmont Shore neighborhood. Running along a white sand beach for nearly its entire journey, the trail provides direct access to the Pacific Ocean and the city's popular Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier.

The path, which is 17 feet wide, features separate 6-foot-wide bike lanes and a 5-foot-wide pedestrian lane, offering ample room for trail users of all types. As you can imagine, views from the trail are spectacular: cranes of the container port, oil islands and ships anchored in the outer harbor mix with more traditionally beautiful scenes of Palos Verdes and the mouth of the San Gabriel River in the distance.

Parking and Trail Access

Ample parking for the Shoreline Pedestrian/Bicycle Path is available in pay parking lots off E. Shoreline Drive or E. Ocean Boulevard.
