The Coast to Crest Trail at the Lagoon

Trailhead #1 location: Del Mar.

Directions to Trail: Take the I-5 freeway to Via de la Valle. Go west on Via de la Valle, then south on Jimmy Durante Blvd. past Del Mar Fairgrounds at 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd. Just after the bridge over the San Dieguito River, turn right into the Del Mar Public Works Yard, 2240 Jimmy Durante Blvd. Park where you can find a legal space on weekends. This is the closest access to the west end. From the parking area, cross Jimmy Durante Blvd., then cross the bridge to the north side of the river. Trail is on the right.  (Del Mar is negotiating to provide a parking area at the northeast corner of the intersection of Jimmy Durante Blvd. and San Dieguito Drive.  When this is available it will provide much needed parking space in this constrained area.)

Trailhead #2 location: San Diego

Directions to Trail: Take the I-5 freeway to Via de la Valle.  Go east on Via de la Valle, turn right on San Andres by California Bank and Trust at 2775 Via de la Valle. Park along San Andres, then access trail at kiosk, or go through Park gate and follow signs to park in the Staging Area.
