It’s great for everyone! It’s paved so you can bring grandma and at 6 miles round trip you can run or go multiple times. The scenery is fantastic and it’s about 15 minutes from everywhere in San Diego!

This is a paved walking/running/biking trail. Great views. There are many ways in/out if you don't want to do the whole route.

It’s a nice place to run and go for a walk. Make sure to get in before sundown, they close early.

This one is more of a walk in the park than a hike. As a runner, this is definitely a road run, not a trail run. Regardless, I've come back several times because it's beautiful and I can just run without worrying that I'm going off the "trail".

I run here a few times a week, and I love it. There's plenty of parking, and the paved trail is great. You can't go all the way around the lake though- just before 3 miles you have to turn around. Bathrooms along the way and a water fountain at the beginning/end.

Lots of shade, nice relaxing walk, lots of people but not too crowded as the road is wide.

Gorgeous! I enjoy running around the lake; it's not really a hike since the path is entirely paved. Very serene, a great place to relax.

Quick scenic paved trail. Good to bike or walk/run. Always has lots of people and a speed limit so be prepared. Trail is out and back. Cute snack shop in the park if you need anything or decide to rent boats afterward. Most popular around sunset when it is finally cool.

We love walking and running here! It's beautiful! But it does get hot as there's merely no shade.

Great easy hike. No shade though. Go early and bring plenty of water
