Very nice hike with the hubby and dog through lovely Maple Canyon and then an little zig zagging through historic Bankers Hill.

nice stroll with great views of houses in an area you would usually not go through. I recommend for families and dog walks

Nice city hike, some trail, start from the bottom of maple st. Nice views, easy for the whole family, i do recommend!

Great views, I don’t give it 5 stars because it’s not marked at all, you need to use the app, otherwise you get lost. There are too many gated properties downhill and it’s hard to find you way back.

Great little urban hike hidden right in Hillcrest & Bankers Hill. I try to do this every now and again. Usually lightly trafficked

awesome afternoon hike with great views

Nice views. There’s a hill coming up the canyon and another hill coming down but other than that it’s a nice and easy walk. FYI, we walked with our dogs here but encountered three other dogs all off leash. My dog is dog reactive and we weren’t happy about this. There are signs that dogs must be leashed but rules aren’t followed here.

This trail was a great little hike, I’m born and raised in San Diego and I never even heard of this trail. It’s like I found a gem in my back yard.

Great hike with my dog and SO. Beautiful day and nice sunny and shady spots. First part is slightly uphill and in nature with beautiful wild flowers and cacti blooming. The bridges are a nice treat as well as the unique homes along the way. Would hike it again! Note: I did see one needle cap near canyon exit so I would beware and not let kids or dogs loose around here.

Better part of the 7 bridge walk

Nice walk. It is not difficult, but there are some good views, nice neighborhood, and peaceful surroundings.

Fun for a "city hike"

Great local trail.

Not bad for urban hiking. It was perfect for the kids and kinda historic.

This is one of my favorites place to hike when I don't want to drive for a big hike far from home. I just ride my bike few miles away and hike the canyon, cross the bridge and walk few blocks and get back by the Kings Canyon, doing both canyons. I usually do this hike at least 2 times a week. It is short but very peaceful and just in the heart of the city.

Easy peasy. Got to see some decent homes on bankers hill.

my boyfriend and I did this hike like 2 weeks ago and had a complete blast. we parked our car at the trail head and then took a string of random hidden bridges in the area just north of downtown so there were some amazing amazing views. we ended up continuing north onto university and stopped by whole foods and a haggens that was closing to grab some dinner supplies then walked back to thr car. turned out to be a gorgeous hike/walk and a full day affair

Great hike if you are short on time, live, or work very close by. Otherwise, not worth the trouble of finding parking. However, the footbridge view was nice and scary!

Easy but fun trail in heart of North Park. Nice way to work up a sweat on way to bar.

Not so much a trail as a walking tour of the older San Diego houses of Banker's Hill. The highlights are the Quince St trestle bridge and the Spruce St. suspension bridge. To add actual trail to your trip, start at the end of Maple St. near Little Italy. Head up Maple Canyon and when done with Banker's Hill head back down 1st Ave to Laurel St. & Little Italy.

This is probably the most enjoyable way to get from the waterfront area (near the airport) to Balboa Park on foot. Just head up Laurel a few blocks from the east end of the airport runway, take a left on State, right on Maple, and when the road ends, the trail up the canyon starts. Wide and gentle at first, and then it gets a bit narrow and steeper at the end. Trail finishes near 3rd and Redwood, and if you continue east to 6th you will find yourself in Balboa Park
