We completed the entire walk during three weeks in July with the exception of Catalina (we took a Lyft from San Pedro to Long Beach) and the San Clemente to Oceanside portion (we took the Amtrak train). It was great fun and the weather was excellent. I would emphasize paying attention to Tom's tide recommendations. We did and were able to do huge portions of the walk barefoot in the water and on the wet sand. The warm water temps in July also allowed us to take Ocean swims most days.
