There is no designated parking for the Bonaire/Edinger Trail. You can take advantage of street parking at any point along Edinger Avenue, though the most popular access points at at Bonaire Circle and Santa Barabara Lane. Park and cross the street to your chosen access point and you'll cross a short, sandy divide onto a flat, paved path!
The path is wide, flat, and paved, making this one of the most accessible hikes in the area. It's often popular with cyclists and wheel-chair users as well as dog walkers, so watch your space and share the road for the best results. The path is also easy on your body. While you should always wear proper shoes while hiking, Bonaire/Edinger Trail is a bit more forgiving than some.
The main attraction of this trail is the great view of the water. You're walking next to an ocean channel the whole way, and the wildlife love it. You'll also be near the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge, and can often see some of the local and migratory birds that call that refuge home. Though you're only steps from the street at any given moment, the water and the openness of the view helps you feel far away from the city. You can choose to step off the path and go down towards the water for a breather, but there is no water access here.
Bonaire/Edinger Trail is a great place to visit, or a pawsome part of your daily routine!
