I-5 south get off at Dairy Mart Rd. Make a right on dairy Mart Rd. pass the stop sign and you will see the trail head on your right. to get to the beach just keep going straight on Diary Mart till it ends. ( Dairy Mart Rd. turns into Monument Rd. )
good Walk good views good plants!
Great trail, wouldn't go at night
Try to ride at least once a week.
We rented horses and rode the beach.
Nice run near the border
I did this last year so I could see first hand the dead whale that had washed ashore. I am posting pictures of that, so enjoy.
It was very interesting to be that close to the border and seeing the old bull fighting ring, among other sings. Makes you glad to live in America.
This park begins from Dairy Mart Rd. and it ends at the beach. there are many posts where you can park your vehicle. the park at dairy mart rd. is getting a trail lift, meaning that the trails are getting fixed. and i guess they are fixing as to how to walk around during rainy season cause it floods. but just went there yesterday and it looking nice. in spring look out for snakes. watch your kids and keep dogs on leash. all in all it's a decent park..I sugest you read Afoot and Afield is a book about trails in San Diego.
The road to the beach was closed so we did the entire park on foot. We spent a few hours just wondering around. The only problem was dodging all the landmines from the horses. Kiddos loved climbing on the huge dirt mound. Overall it was nice, but we probably won't head back again. Kiddos didn't like not being able to play in the water and I felt like I was in the middle of no where.
good trail to take your dogs on however I would advise to keep them on leashes also good for horse back ridding
