How would I say: "He is going down the path"? Would I say something like: "El esta caminando cuesto abajo el sendero"? Or would I just say "El esta bajando el sendero"? When do I use cuesto abajo?

"Cuesta abajo" (not "cuesto") is "downhill".

"Él está bajando el sendero" (be mindful of the tildes, please) is correct, and it's simpler. Your first option is awkward, confusing and incorrect. "He's going downhill the path"

To me, "Él va bajando el sendero" sounds even better. Also, if it's obvious that the path is downhill, and perhaps not particularly steep, it may be sufficient to just say: "Él va por el sendero".

But if you say "Él va por el sendero", where does it say he's going down, and not up? :)

"He is going down the path" = Él va bajando por el sendero wink
