To see another side of Carlsbad, you can’t go wrong with the city’s large network of biking and walking trails. Since 1990, the city has been developing and implementing a trail system that will help people explore and appreciate natural, open spaces surrounding Carlsbad. Since then, they have developed 38 miles of open trails and 48 miles of biking trails!
It’s an important project, and one that has excited our visitors. There are many people who will look up hiking trails as soon as they arrive at a new destination, and we’re thrilled to be able to deliver. The excitement doesn’t stop there, either, as 20 more miles of hiking trails are being planned.
The trails are varied in distance and difficulty, meaning that hikers of all experience levels will find something to enjoy. Plus, if you want to help out, there is an adopt-a-trail program that will help you contribute to future developments.
If you are looking for some more active and scenic activities during your stay in Carlsbad, then we highly recommend exploring some of our trails. We’re quite proud of them.
