I love this trail and mountain bike it with my family often. Hiking is easy but I have to bike as a necessity. Great parking at several different trails heads. You’re real close to the ocean at all times so the salt air & breeze is always pleasing/ always there. Since it’s an Oceanic Estuary, you’ll see lots of native birds. Rabbits & squirrels too.

This was a nice flat walk. No shade and little air movement in some areas. It’s described as a loop but be aware that it’s mister definitely not. It’s an out and back trail. Bring lots of water and wear a hat. Nice bird viewing

It's a great hike, but the reason for the 3 stars is because it has no views. It's just flat land with navy helicopters flying above you. one can see wildlife like birds, rabbits and it's a decent walk but no views. It's a good place for bird watching and take a good stroll.I sugest you read Afoot and Afield is a book about trails in San Diego.

Amazing trail and beautiful scenery! A nice relaxing spot to hike, walk your dog, and see wildlife. It has a great view of the sunset.

This trail is not much of a hike. It's best for walking, jogging, running or even biking. Theres an estuary hence the name. There's an information center that can provide you with information. They are very helpful, nice & can educate you. If your interested in birds or wild flowers this is a great place!

Tijuana Estuary is part of a complicated State/Federal Park. The trails are as flat as they come, but if you're interested in birding, or wildflowers, this is an excellent place to bring binoculars, camera and a field guide or two. It's also a kid friendly walk. Spring is ideal, and as the summer wears on and autumn arrives different birds and plants become more prominent. The date I entered is arbitrary, as I've been there many times. The visitor center is worth a look as well. Leave a couple bucks in the donation jar, the parks need our help right now.
