Park in the lot at 2721 Monument Road and walk east to the Beach Trail on Old Dairy Mart Road. Follow the trail to Border Field State Park, or choose any of the park’s many other trails.
Why We Love It
Explore this peaceful river park that sits right on the Mexican border. It’s usually less packed than San Diego’s other hiking and running spots but still offers pretty views and easy-to-follow trails.
Where to Refuel Afterwards
IB Forum Sports Bar & Grill (1079 Seacoast Drive, Imperial Beach) or Achiote (4419 Camino de la Plaza, San Ysidro) for family-style Mexican eats.
