Coastal path on the Côte d'Azur in France.
The South West Coast Path shares the sea wall between Teignmouth and Dawlish Warren with long distance and Riviera Line trains.
The Ten Mile Haul Road runs north of Fort Bragg, though MacKerricher State Park. This road was originally used to haul lumber to the mills and ports of Fort Bragg. Nowadays the road is almost entirely closed off to cars (some of it impassably or unstable) and limited to pedestrians and cyclists only (22 September 2009).

A coastal path (or a littoral path) is a trail along a sea shore or a lake shore for pedestrians, and sometimes for cyclists or equestrians.

Some coastal paths were originally created for use by customs or coastguard officials looking out for smugglers landing illicit goods. In modern times some routes have been developed for tourists, with facilities such as benches, waymarks and information boards.
