10 San Diego Trails to Get You Outside in 2018

Difficulty Level
Easy, great for beginners who are new to exercising

2.5 miles for the loop


The trail begins from a parking lot on Oak Oasis Road off Wildcat Canyon Road in Lakeside. Follow it west and then go either direction at the split to make a loop.

What to Look For

A shady oak grove for a quick break

Why We Love It

The flat and smooth trail is a family-friendly alternative to the nearby challenge of El Cajon Mountain.

Where to Refuel Afterward

Try the scrambles or a frittata at the classic diner Izzy’s Cafe (1252 Broadway, El Cajon). They also have all the traditional breakfast options, including hotcakes and stuffed French toast.
