Really nice and walkable, I love seeing the boats and being near the water. It’s not super crowded for the most part. It’s not incredibly quiet however due to the vicinity to Harbor Drive & the Airport.

This trail is gorgeous! It is a little confusing at the north side of trail... You have to go under a bridge (I noticed taking the road instead of trail was the route I needed to take on the way back). I believe the trail ends here but the bike paths don’t. You can take a pedestrian bridge over to another town and ride along the water and grab a bite to eat. Great ride!

Traffic can be rough sometimes but this is a scenic walk/easy bike ride.

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.

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.

This trail runs the entire length of the Embarcadero on San Diego Bay and should be named as such. Seaport Village is a commercial/shjopping center ....NOT A TRAIL. There are several other attractionalong this route that are of greater public interest.....such as the USS Midway Museum, The Maritime Museum, Spanish Landing Park, Tuna Wharf and the Kissing Sailor statue, The County Waterfront Park, Broadway Pier.

Very nice path nice views. You have to pay for parking if you start at the south end by Sea Port Village. The appeared to be free parking at the north end wish I had known that.

Very nice walk, we always go there when we're in San Diego, hometown of my wife. Recommended, nice shops, great views.

I am fortunate enough to work right by San Diego's Seaport Village. I've logged quite a few miles on this "trail" (my run app says a couple 100). The convention center stairs are a great way to boost your run/walk. Very pretty views of the "Big Bay" and Coronado Island.

Early mornings are the best- everything is just waking up; it's pure zen and very relaxing and a great walk. Also great for photo's. I am a San Diego native and it's a good place to go.

I've was raised in San Diego and live going to Seaport Village! There are a variety of shops, side entertainment, and beautiful bay/ocean views. It is a wonderful place to go with the family or even by yourself.
