Easy, great for beginners new to exercising
5.7 miles round-trip
Good to Know
Not stroller friendly
Start on the south bend of Rancho Drive in Chula Vista, near the 805. Follow the gravel path along the river, which has plenty of side paths to explore.
Why We Love It
This hidden trail takes you along the quiet Otay River, where you’ll feel lost in the woods as you explore its twisted paths.
What to Instagram
Quaint footbridges crossing the river
