This trail is a series of dirt paths through a stand of trees on the UCSD campus. We went on a weekend, but I don't think it would be anyplace worth going during the week since it's going to be impossible to park. It's a nice little trail but overall it doesn't feel like an escape because you're always very close to traffic and the location makes it feel like something that is mostly for student use.
