- San Dieguito River Trail and One Paseo
Spend a morning exploring the coastal trails of Del Mar on The San Dieguito Lagoon trail. It is a short hike that leads along the mouth of the San Dieguito River and its associated lagoon. The San Dieguito Lagoon trail runs along the edges of the San Dieguito River which forms the edges of the coastal cities of Solana Beach and Del Mar. The hike terminates where San Dieguito Lagoon empties into the Pacific Ocean at the well known, Dog Beach in Del Mar. Some of the notable highlights along the trail will include the San Diego (Del Mar) Fairgrounds, the train trestles that run up and down the coast, and the Pacific Ocean. If you’re aching to get outside during the hot summer months when other places in San Diego are unbearable, this short and easy trail can offer some relief to those in need of fresh air. During the spring, California sunflowers make for some vibrant colors along portions of this trail.
A few miles from the trailhead is One Paseo, a stylish retail complex with shops and eats, where you can enjoy some local craft beer at the up-and-coming Harland Brewery. Kick your feet up at an outdoor table or head inside for some old school arcade games and pool. You can have food from any of the nearby restaurants delivered right to your table.
Not a beer drinker? Get your buzz on with a cup of coffee from Blue Bottle Coffee or indulge in a tasty treat from Shake Shack. Grab a table by the koi pod and do some people watching.
