MORE THAN 65 MILES OF TRAILS OF EVERY LEVEL ARE OPEN YEAR-ROUND FOR DAY USE — FREE OF CHARGE
Most trails are open to hikers, bikers, and equestrians. The backbone multi-use trail – the Coast to Crest Trail – extends from the ocean at Del Mar to the San Dieguito River’s source on Volcan Mountain near Julian. Today, we have 49 miles of the planned 71 miles of the Coast to Crest Trail completed. In addition, over 20 miles of auxiliary trails within the River Park are open. Auxiliary trails are not part of the Coast to Crest Trail, and may have limited use regulations which will be clearly noted.
