This trail is the Carlsbad sea wall, and it is extremely popular with local residents. You have the beach on one side and the coast Highway on the other with street parking along the trail. Nice place to walk on a sunny San Diego day, but don't expect to be the only person there.
It's a tourist beach walk..and if you want to get caught up in the latest beach fashion pretty lame...
Beautiful California beach walk in Carlsbad.
Did this trail twice in two days, so yeah, I love this trail. It's also a very busy trail. The Sea wall part of the trail down on the beach is awesome, but it's pedestrians only, so the sidewalk up top can become overcrowded.
More of an urban beach experience... go early in the morning before traffic and you can hear the ocean for most of your walk. Always a great spot to catch a sunset!
This beach walk is actually in the quaint Carlsbad Village area, with restaurants, shopping, etc. It's magnificent on a clear day at sunset :)
