Why We Love It
This trail keeps you in ocean breezes and views the entire way. It also traces a portion of the Carlsbad Marathon (returning next January), for those who want to get a practice run in.
Where to Refuel
Try crème brûlée stuffed French toast or omelets and breakfast sandwiches at Cafe Elysa (3076 Carlsbad Boulevard).
