12 miles for the full out-and-back.
Start at De Anza Cove in Mission Bay and follow the bike path heading north around the athletic area until it joins with Santa Fe Street, or continue on the path into UTC and follow the trails in Rose Canyon Open Space.
Why We Love It
Initially isolated and away from cars, this bike path feels like a secret tunnel from Mission Bay to La Jolla.
Where to Refuel Afterward
Try Better Buzz Coffee (3745 Mission Boulevard) for gourmet coffee and sandwiches or The Menu (3784 Ingraham Street) for traditional diner fare.
