Walk Wednesdays in Encinitas

If you haven’t been checking out Encinitas’ Parks and Recreation department’s blog lately then you have been missing a lot of great Walk Wednesdays. Just in case you missed them, I am going to share some highlights from their suggestions with quotes of their descriptions. You need to check out some of these great Encinitas area walks this month!

Boneyards Beach Walk

“The route is 1.8 miles round trip and gets you a great workout on the sand.  The tidal range is large this week, so be sure to get out there early in the AM to catch some great negative tides, or the afternoon low tide so that you have plenty of beach to walk on.  During low tide conditions, the reefs near Swami’s are well exposed and fun to explore.” – Encinitas Parks and Recreation

Cottonwood Creek Park Trail

“This 1.1 mile out-and-back stroll starts and ends at Cottonwood Creek Park, an Encinitas favorite, just off of Encinitas Blvd, west of I-5.  Along the way, spot the interpretive signage telling the story of the watershed, and how the design of the park, and the City’s practices serve to filter and clean up the water before it reaches the ocean.” – Encinitas Parks and Recreation

Olivenhain Lone Hill Horse Trail

“Your hike will start from off-street parking available along Lone Jack Road near Lone Hills Drive.  From marked trail 93 along Lone Jack Road, you’ll head up Lone Hills Drive.  Go through the pedestrian opening around the gate and stay along the marked Recreational Trail.  As you hit the summit, you’ll find the trail marker to cross Lone Hills Drive to get onto trail 141, which will round a bend and provide you sweeping views of the canyon below.  Once the trail section ends at Lone Hills Drive, you can either turn back or explore other trail options that branch out to the east, at Encinitas’ city limits.” – Encinitas Parks and Recreation

Fortuna Ranch Loop

“Our route for this week takes you back to beautiful Olivenhain for a lengthy 3.67 mile loop.  The route, while passing along ranches and homes, keeps you on City multi-use trails, open to runners/walkers, horses and bicycles.” – Encinitas Parks and Recreation
