Just a few minutes from downtown San Diego, Mission Trails Regional park has hiking trails, campgrounds, fishing, picnic facilities, and lots of wide open spaces. Run, bike or walk and enjoy the beautiful and peaceful scenery.

This is a well marked 3.2 mile walking and biking path with a little elevation change (not much). The downside is the path does not go completely around the lake; it ends at the water treatment plant so you need to walk back the 3.2...More
Loved this place! I came here to spend the day hiking. I had read the reviews before I went. I’m from Minnesota, so I wanted to make sure I was prepared. It was hotter there than I expected in December… Got up to about 80°...More
This has to be one of my most favorite places to go in SD. It's like stepping into another world. Every visit helps me escape the city feels. Great hikes, lost of trails, and I feel relaxed after every visit.
A beautiful place with helpful information and a very pleasant guide. It lacks a refreshment facility - we were sure there’d be one so we headed up there thinking that we’d get lunch with a view. Will plan a return trip with our own refreshments...More
This place rocks!! So many trails to choose from! What to do, what to do!! Easy, hard, moderate....it is all up to you. There is about 60 miles of trails at this urban park.
If it is your first time here, then I suggest dropping...More
A late afternoon into the evening wedding was delightful. The amphitheater (wedding) and patio (reception) are comfortable for about 100 people. The natural backdrop is beautiful and the garden makes for nice photos. Congratulations C&B!
Very surprised! What a wonderful place. They had a visitor center and also many films to view in the auditorium. They also had scheduled performances like dance, music ( piano, flute, vocal, guitar...) in the outdoor amphitheater during weekends. Many trails to walk and also...More
I went there to hear a presentation about a Harris Hawk. The live bird was there and the handler was most knowledgeable. The talk was educational and inspiring. I then took a hike with my young puppy dog and family. It was very hot the...More
My wife and I did some walking/hiking there this past week. The park offers lots of choices on trails (and levels of difficulties). Trails were a little hot the day we visited. Good way to get some exercise without having to travel far from San...More

Yes there are. You can walk from the visitors center to the other side of mission hills (Santee) it's flat & paved. Or park in the lots in Santee (not paved) and walk to the paved road that will end up at the visitors center. It's a very nice walk. There is a stream/San Diego river you walk by. Have always felt safe

Looking for suggestions on an area where we should stay (probably a VRBO) in San Diego/La Jolla area. Prefer on or very near beach. We prefer to rent for a week rather than move around much and we'll have a car. We are pretty hands on/active, yet like to leave time to relax and unwind and watch the sun set. Looking at some of the highly rated areas like USS Midway, Torrey Pines State Reserve, Zoo, Sea World, Sunset Cliffs National Park, La Jolla Cove, maybe a baseball game, Point Loma /...More

Hi Dave P - As I'm sure you know July is our high season at the beach. What is your budget per night for your rental? If a week is that t or 7 days? Also, what are your dates in July? I hope not at the beginning. The busiest convention of the year ComicCon is here 9 - 12th. Although, it probably won't have too much of an affect on renting a house or condo in La Jolla or even Coronado. Coronado is another nice upscale area. If you find those too locations too $$$ you might look at south...More
