Trail of the Month: Old Sea World Drive



Published:

Great for
Running/Biking

Difficulty Level
Easy to moderate, depending on the wind

Distance
4.5 miles for the out-and-back, more if you extend it

Where: Park in a dirt lot off Friars Road near its intersection with Sea World Drive. Follow Old Sea World Drive, now a bike path, west to Hospitality Point, then turn around and head back, or extend your route by following Quivira Way into Mission Bay or by taking the Sunset Cliffs Boulevard bridge to the Ocean Beach Bike Path.

Why We Love It: It avoids the crowds of Mission Bay and the boardwalk, and has better views anyway. Follow it along the lagoons and glistening water in the San Diego River to Hospitality Point, where you can stop for a minute and enjoy 360 degrees of ocean view.

Where to refuel afterwards: Continue your healthy streak at The Naked Café (3555 Rosecrans Avenue), where they break down menu items by protein, fat, calories, and carbs. If it’s after 2:30 p.m, try Mission Beach’s Olive Café (805 Santa Clara Place).
