Palos Verdes

The area around Angel's Gate park, White's point, Cabrillo Beach and the Long Beach harbor is quite scenic. Although there are few formal bicycle trails here, it is relatively easy to bicycle in this area.

This is a panoramic view of the Palos Verdes pennisula from the Cabrillo Beach pier. The breakwater on the left continues out to sea for another mile, eventually ending up at a small light house. The Point Fermin light house is near the tip of the penisula on the left in this view. The Point Fermin wildlife refuge is just below the lighthouse. The Long Beach harbor is to the right.
