Great Places to Jog in La Jolla, CA

  |     |   Things to Do

Located in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego, the 4th & J luxury apartments provide residents with convenient access to the area's shops, restaurants, and entertainment. There are also plenty of parks, and exercise locations in nearby La Jolla, so if you're a jogger, you've got an array of options for putting in some miles.

Torrey Pines State Reserve

The Torrey Pines State Reserve is home to six trails that should accommodate joggers of every level. The trails are relatively short, so you may want to combine a couple if you're after a serious workout. The Broken Hill Trail contains some tough hill work, so you might want to opt for an easy couple of miles the next time out. If so, try the Guy Fleming Trail and Parry Grove Trail, both of which provide stunning views of the Pacific Ocean.

La Jolla Heights Open Space

This 42-acre-park, located at the top of Mt. Soledad is an excellent spot for jogging and spotting local wildlife. The best time to tackle this one is in the evening; you'll contend with a steep incline on the first leg, but once you get to the top, you'll be rewarded with an absolutely beautiful ocean sunset. The second leg is mainly downhill heading back down the mountain.

The Ocean Path

The 3.3-mile Ocean Path takes you along Coast Boulevard before heading into the visually stunning Ellen Browning Scripps Park. The path is pretty much all paved, so your main issue will be dodging the walkers, joggers, and bikers who frequent this popular path. After exiting the park, head down past the La Jolla Caves on the Coast Walk Trail. It's a nice, laid-back route with some good views along the way.

Sunset Cliff Natural Park

This 68-acre-park presents plenty of jogging opportunities past carved coastal bluffs, arches, and sea caves, depending on your chosen route. Paths etched in the cliffs provide ample opportunity for serious joggers to test their endurance on hilly terrain.
