Start on Hotel Circle North, either where it dead-ends at Hotel Circle Place, or farther east in Mission Valley. Follow the protected path all the way to the beach.

Why We Love It:

Discover this hidden path that takes you from the heart of Mission Valley to the ocean. Its lack of crowds makes it feel like a well-kept secret that offers picturesque views of the San Diego River along the way.

Where to Refuel Afterward:

Congress Cafe in Old Town (3941 Mason Street) has a delicious Mexican mocha, or stop for a break at Shades Oceanfront Bistro (5083 Santa Monica Avenue) while you’re in OB.
