Looks like great trail, but recent rains have washed it out. It's closed for now, but staff are hard at work to get it back open.

Beautiful hike - great place to clear your mind, see some breathtaking natural views and even get a little cardio in! Keep in mind it's $10 for a week pass (no day passes available) and does attract large crowds, but it's so big so you won't feel "crowded". Enjoy!

We discovered this trail our first day visiting San Diego and it remains one of our favorite go-to adventures as now locals. It has everything you would want. Ocean views, nature, a well-manicured trail, native CA plants to see and animals to observe. All in an underrated, hardly packed package. Most visitors don't even see it.

Love this path. Dogs are only allowed certain times though.

Nice views but traffic is quite loud right next to path for the majority

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.

Not really a trail. Spent 4 miles on a small shoulder.
