when it gets too hot to hike the mtns and desert, go urban hiking lol. this was fun and you get to see some little known places around northern central downtown.

Great city walk. We followed the map and never stepped off concrete. The bridges were fun and gave you something to count and look forward to along the way. It was a full 6 miles plus. Fairly flat for the most part, I’d consider this an easy walk other than the distance.

Fun to see the City on foot!

Really nice walk. My kids rode scooters and had a great time! The trail gets confusing at Indiana and Myrtle. Just head back on Park from that point unless you want to do some desert-like trail walking back to balboa park fountain

Some of those bridges are really neat. It is a great experience to walk around such a large part of city.

Parts of the trail are confusing by Balboa Park. Parts seemed unnecessary to me. Overall definitely worth doing once.

Pretty easy and cool way to see the city. Wear supportive running shoes as it’s mostly all concrete and can be a pain with less than forgiving footwear just ask my feet

It was a fun walk with a few really cool bridges. I went on a Sunday and popped through the Hillcrest farmers market which was a fun surprise.

La caminata la sentí muy ligera. Entiendo que es un sendero urbano por lo tanto no puedes llevar un ritmo constante por el tráfico vehicular. El escenario es bonito, San Diego sabe mantener sus calles limpias y ordenadas. Encontré varias calles cerradas por construcción y falto pasar por un puente. El clima resulto favorable, estaba nublado. Seguí la ruta que marca la aplicación e hice 2.20 hrs en recorrer 5.2 millas.

Nice walking tour, not the most scenic, but enjoyable to walk through some old neighborhoods. Farmers market on Sunday's well worth stopping at about halfway through hike, we enjoyed it overall.

This was a a fun hike through city neighborhoods. If you start in Balboa Park and go clockwise, you will hit Hillcrest about halfway which is a great place to stop for brunch/lunch. If you go in Sunday, you will go past the Farmers Market on Normal Street which is also fun.

This is an amazing trail! If you do it on Sunday you will also be directed straight to the farmers market! Bring water and running shoes! It's a long trail!

I was really underwhelmed by this trail. There was only one really cool rope bridge that we walked on. Otherwise, there was a lot of nothing. It took my fiancé, my dog, and I about 3 hours to finish the whole thing, so it served its purpose to get us out and moving, but I definitely wouldn't do it again.

Great fun to see parts of SD that I doubt I would have without visiting this walking tour of the bridges.

Loved every one of the bridges. Completed on a hot summer day. And finished at Panama 66 for a late lunch.

From San Diego's canyons to its Urban streets. You'll see it all.

Great little hike about. Took my 8 and 6 year old nieces. They loved looking for the bridges.

This walk is NOT 6.7 miles, it's more like 5.2. I don't know who puts the distances and difficulty on these trails but they are often beyond wrong which is super annoying. This is not "moderate", it's easy. Yet they'll put hard hikes up a mountain as easy. Ugh. Anyways, it's a great walk which takes you through several neighborhoods around balboa. Idk where ppl come up with the nature part of it as it's not. It's 98% urban walking. You walk by a lot of historic houses and neighborhoods. Bring comfy shoes,water,and a hat if it's a sunny day. If you do the walk clockwise, a little more than halfway you'll hit Hillcrest which is a great time to stop and eat/take a break. We hit Bread & Cie which has amazing sandwiches. Continuing through you'll hit the Vernon street bridge but then the 7th and final bridge was closed for construction as of today(5/30/17) so that was a bummer. All in all it was a fun time and took us about 3 hours including a 30 minute lunch break. Recommend parking at the Inez Rose Garden as you will cross the first bridge right away. Otherwise if you park at the NAT,you'll have to backtrack to cross the first bridge.
