running in Carlsbad.

Will be in Carlsbad for a week at the end of March. Where are the best places to run in Carlsbad?

Running is a popular pastime in Carlsbad, there is a sidewalk/boardwalk that goes for miles along the beach. The area is very jogger friendly.

Previous posters captured it well ... Carlsbad Boulevard runs along the coast and is a good place to run. The beach walk runs from Tamarack (south) to Pine (north). The beaches are not rocky and you can run on them even during high tide.

Just adding to what others have said......

My favourite run is down at the beach in the Carlsbad Village area. I park at the lot on the north end (opposite Pine Street and accessed from Ocean Street if you have a map) which is free to park in but can be very busy on a nice day. I usually run from Pine Street/Carlsbad Boulevard south to Cannon Road and back and its just over 3 miles. Just be warned that if you go after work hours on a week day or on the weekend it can be busy - even in March.

Alternatively I also like the trail along Batiquitos Lagoon on the south side of Carlsbad. Its a little more difficult to find but there is parking at the end of Gabbiano Lane and the trail heads east from there along the north side of the lagoon.
