Huntington Beach Bike Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Huntington Dog Beach is the one place in Orange County where dogs can freely run over the beach. And run they do. You will find dogs of all breeds and sizes gamboling in the water and sand. The area where dogs are allowed on the beach extends between Seapoint on the north and 21st Street on the south. Roughly a mile of shore and surf exists solely for the pleasure of dogs and their proud owners. On any given weekend the beach is full of dogs running to and fro. No leashes, no restraints, just tennis balls, sticks, Frisbees, and canines aplenty. Those who enter the beach do so at their own risk."
--Allen Riedel, Best Hikes with Dogs: Southern California (The Mountaineers Books).
"Huntington City Beach is a 3.5-mile strand of wide, sandy shoreline between Bolsa Chica State Beach and Huntington State Beach. Huntington Beach, known as Surf City, is one of Orange County’s most popular surfing beaches. This hike follows the 30-foot bluffs of Bluff Top Park, from the south end of Bolsa Chica State Beach to Huntington Pier. Huntington Pier is at the foot of the city’s Main Street. It is a busy beach hub with shops and restaurants. The 1,850-foot-long pier, built in 1914, is lit with floodlights for after-dark fishing and surfing. The beach is lined with low bluffs and an 8.5-mile-long walking and biking path that extends from Bolsa Chica State Beach and Huntington Beach southward to the Santa Ana River."
--Robert Stone, Day Hikes Around Orange County (Day Hike Books).
"This hike takes you north along wide sandy Huntington State Beach to Bolsa Chica State Beach and adjacent Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve. You can also make this a one-way jaunt by taking advantage of OCTD Bus #1 which makes several stops along Pacific Coast Highway. This is an ideal beach trail to bike and hike. A bike path extends the length of Bolsa Chica Beach to the Santa Ana River south of Huntington Beach. You can leave your bike at Bolsa Chica State Beach and hike up to it from Huntington Beach."
--John McKinney, Orange County: A Day Hiker's Guide (The Trailmaster).
