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 Hiway 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.
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 :)
