Trail of the Month: Moonlight Beach to Fletcher Cove


Published:

Great for
Running

Difficulty Level
Easy

Distance
5-9 miles

Where: Start at Moonlight State Beach on Encinitas Boulevard in Encinitas. Run south on South Coast Highway 101, past Encinitas’ shops and restaurants. After about one mile, you’ll join up with a bike path that takes you along the highway. Follow this down to the Cardiff Kook statue for a 5-mile loop, or continue on to Fletcher Cove in Solana Beach (a 9-mile loop).

Why We Love It: Take in the ocean views and cool breezes on this route that keeps you away from cars and has few stoplights. When you’re done, dip your feet in the ocean at Moonlight, or bring a towel and rest on the sand.

Where to refuel afterwards: Try mimosas and scrambles at the Encinitas Café (531 South Coast Highway 101), or smoothies and healthy fare at Swami’s Café (1163 South Coast Highway 101).
