Bayside Trail is a 2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near San Diego, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, trail running, and road biking and is accessible year-round.
We discovered this trail our first day visiting San Diego and it remains one of our favorite go-to adventures as now locals. It has everything you would want. Ocean views, nature, a well-manicured trail, native CA plants to see and animals to observe. All in an underrated, hardly packed package. Most visitors don't even see it.
Very nice trail. Al little steep going back up. Views are spectacular.
I love this trail! It's short and sweet, but very scenic. Good beginning hike or for taking family/friends that aren't regular hikers.
Great place to go, and see sights normally you don't.
Short trail but great views. If you want to get a little exercise at Cabrillo it's nice.
Gravel trail in Cabrillo National Monument that starts near the lighthouse. No beach access from the trail.
Very scenic with a panoramic view. Very easy to walk and fast. It costs $10 to get in but it's worth the trip.
