Rincon Bike Trail Description

The Rincon Bike Trail offers both beautiful views of the Santa Barbara Channel and an important alternative to US 101 for bicyclists. The trail begins at Carpinteria State Beach's Rincon Point and Rincon County Beach Park, a popular surfing spot just outside of Carpinteria, and heads south between the coast and the highway with a decorative railing separating the trail from traffic.

The trail begins at the Santa Barbara County line but runs through Ventura County and is part of a larger network called the California Coastal Trail, a developing multi-use route spanning 1,200 miles from Oregon to Mexico.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in Rincon County Beach Park (US 101 at Bates Road/Rincon Point Road).

Rincon Bike Trail Reviews

Nice bike ride along the Ventura County, CA shores; if you start in the city of Ventura and finish at Rincon Beach Park--you can complete a good 15 miles of a bike ride. Fabulous view points, don't miss it!

This trail was completed in 2014, and is a beautifully paved bike trail segment along the scenic California coast between Carpinteria and Ventura.

The views are great, the trail surface is paved, but it runs along the US-101 freeway, I gave it 4 stars only because the freeway noise is quite loud and does take away from what could be a great riding experience. But it is what it is, and it is a very nice trail.

We were staying in the small community of La Conchita, and there is easy access via the brand new pedestrian tunnel under the highway.

We rode this both during the week and on the weekend, weekends tend to be much busier with the gun-ho crowd... so keep an eye out for the faster riders on weekends!
