Nice paved path along waterfront. We rented bikes. Most of it was flat and paved. We really enjoyed Santa Barbara from this view. People are very courteous. Definitely recommend either bike or walking.

If you're new to town or just visiting, head down to the harbor and follow the bike path for a 2 mile (each way) run along the water.

6-7 miles of wonderful coastline to bike on and not worry about pedestrians. Flat and great scenery to boot

Nice, flat ride for those who wish to ride along the beach areas near the Santa Barbara Pier. Parking was extremely easy on a Thursday afternoon...even had over-sized parking for our truck! Great day! Would highly recommend!
