It's a great hike, but the reason for the 3 stars is because it has no views. It's just flat land with navy helicopters flying above you. one can see wildlife like birds, rabbits and it's a decent walk but no views. It's a good place for bird watching and take a good stroll.I sugest you read Afoot and Afield is a book about trails in San Diego.

The breeze from the ocean is great

This trail is not much of a hike. It's best for walking, jogging, running or even biking. Theres an estuary hence the name. There's an information center that can provide you with information. They are very helpful, nice & can educate you. If your interested in birds or wild flowers this is a great place!

Tijuana Estuary is part of a complicated State/Federal Park. The trails are as flat as they come, but if you're interested in birding, or wildflowers, this is an excellent place to bring binoculars, camera and a field guide or two. It's also a kid friendly walk. Spring is ideal, and as the summer wears on and autumn arrives different birds and plants become more prominent. The date I entered is arbitrary, as I've been there many times. The visitor center is worth a look as well. Leave a couple bucks in the donation jar, the parks need our help right now.
