0.25 miles for the loop
Start at the trailhead at the intersection of North Rios Avenue and Solana Point Circle in Solana Beach. Follow the "one way loop" arrow from the Annie’s Canyon Trail sign.
Why We Love It:
This trail used to be covered with graffiti, but was recently reopened after a grant-funded restoration. Following it means climbing through narrow rock passages and a chance to detour into a cave. After tracing the route, you can continue along the Solana Hills trail if you want a longer hike or run.
Where to Refuel Afterward:
Beach Grass Cafe (159 South Coast Highway 101, Solana Beach) has breakfast all day, including upside-down pineapple pancakes.
