California Coastal Trail: Dockweiler State Beach( Mel Melcon / Los Angeles Times / October 30, 2013 )
While L.A. County Department of Beaches and Harbors recommends that non-cyclists keep off the trail for safety reasons, you can run alongside the bicycle path on this Santa Monica Bay beach, which spans 22 mostly oceanfront miles from Manhattan Beach to Pacific Palisades.
Run north around the docks at Marina del Rey and back for an eight- to 10-mile loop. This run burns about 1,284 calories for a 150-pound person.
