Tucked between the hubs of Santa Barbara and Malibu, the long boardwalk of the Ventura trail is an ideal spot for a longer distance coast run without all that sand. The section between Surfer’s Point (right near downtown Ventura) and Marina Park, skimming the coast of Pierpont Bay, is probably the most popular spot for runners. It’s about 5 miles one way, but there are lots of opportunities for extensions around Ventura. This trail is also popular for biking, so keep your head up!
