This is a great urban day hike in a great city. Definitely check out the Balboa Park trails towards the end as an alternative ending. Recorded it with my phone this time, so the readings were a bit off, but it was about 12 or so miles round trip from Golden Hill. Seven bridges with one hike.

Not exactly a hike paved the whole way and most of it is through the main museums. I dont know how the author thinks this is hidden by any means.... they are some of the parks main attractions. If you are looking for a nice easy walk on sidewalks and pathways through some of the main areas of balboa then this is for you.
