Hiking & trail running

Difficulty Level

3.2 to 9 miles

Mount Laguna

Get there: It’s about 50 miles from downtown San Diego. Take I-8 East to Sunrise Highway (SR-1). Park near the Sunset Trail trailhead on the highway near mile marker 19.1.

Why We Love It: This trail offers a 3.2-mile loop, or you can follow it for a longer out-and-back hike or run. Along the way, take in views of meadows, pines, and lakes.

Where to refuel afterwards: Down some pints and salads, sandwiches, or even ribs at Alpine Beer Company on 2351 Alpine Boulevard—right on the way home.
