Ocean & Beach Map

Even if you don't have a dog it is fun to walk here and "dog watch". at 9:30am walked along the beachfront and along the path on the peninsula/island that protrudes in the inlet. lot's of birds and beach plants--the sandy path has signs identifying the pickleweed that grows here. Saw a few homeless people here. Not a bad place to walk/run.

Very crowded in some places. Included the Crystal Pier in my walk. Lot's of places to stop and have an drink/food.

The visitor loop is a great short little 1+ mile trail run. Gorgeous views and perfect weather!

Fun walk- plenty to see and good places to have coffee enroute

It's more of a stroll than a hike. The views are gorgeous and there are several spots that you can stop and swim at a little beach. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was heavily crowded. You can rent those bike carts that allow four passengers to pedal and the path was littered with them, and they rang the bell provided them and yelled and hollered at walkers and cyclists to move instead of sharing the road. Very annoying and aggressive at times.

I think this would be a lovely sunset stroll.

We live close to these tide pools! Absolutely beautiful!

However, this picture is of cabrillo national monument tide pool area that is off limits.

This picture is not of la jolla tide pool area.

All cement trails. No issues with stroller on trail.

Walked and ran some of this “trail” which actually an all paved walkway. Some parts of the path do not allow bikes/skateboards/scooters etc but people did anyway. Flat and easy path. Kid and dog safe. There are homeless along the path but not many and they didn’t bother anyway. If you have to go the bathroom there at least three public restrooms along the way. The harbor one (off the path near the hornblower ships) was the cleanest. I parked at the Embarcadero Marina Park parking lot, which is metered pay. Use a credit card (easiest) and it’s for 3 hours. Plenty of time to walk/run the path.

It’s just walk not a hike

would be 5 stars, but dogs are only allowed at night

Great for biking!

Standard loop. Not too exciting for me

Took a morning jog from Spanish Landing to Seaport Village. I avoided the crowds by going around 0830. View is beautiful of the bay. A good playlist and lots of sites to keep your mind busy as your walk, jog, run, or bike this route goes by quickly.

Loved the cool breeze while walking. Plenty of restrooms throughout the walk. Cement path through lots of park area. Plenty of parking.

Did this at night in the rain. Was super beautiful. Across the bay is you can see the San Diego downtown skyline all lit up.

Pleasant Walk, Loved the nice little shops around, lot of people and activities around... It would be great day out on sunny day here...

Very fun. Lots of interesting people and enjoyed the pier at sunset. Huge bubbles were super cool.

If you've got dogs and want to do a quick loop with them off leash, this is a solid place to do it. Zero shade, but tends to have pretty cool breezes coming off the bay.

Lovely flat, paved walkway alongside popular beach with public bathrooms every mile. Don’t know why it’s categorized as “moderate” - definitely “easy”

Had a wonderful day riding bikes and enjoying the beach. Great day!

not really a hike. the trail is actually a busy roadway. the bay is pretty but you're just walking around the island on a lumpy beach.

Fun with the kids

You have to walk a ways down the beach to get to the pools which isn't bad but there aren't a lot of pools so it gets a bit crowded if there are more than 10ish people.
