California Coastal Trail: Santa Monica Beach to Venice Beach

<br>
Runners will never get bored along the Santa Monica and Venice portion of the coastal bike path, which lures inline skaters, cyclists, skateboarders and nearby Muscle Beach sculptors.<br>
<br>
For safety, non-cyclists shouldn't use the bike path, but Santa Monica does offer a pedestrian path. Or you could always trek down closer to the water and grab an extra-strength workout running in the sand.<br>
<br>
This portion of the path is about six miles, from Pacific Palisades' Temescal Canyon Road down to Washington Boulevard in Venice.<i> A one-way run burns about 689 calories for a 150-pound person.</i><br>
