San Diego Sea to Sea Trail

Hopefully in less than a week I'll be starting the San Diego Sea to Sea Trail (don't confuse this with Skurka's crazy cross-country Sea to Sea Trail). It's a 140 mile trail from the Pacific Ocean near Torrey Pines east through urban San Diego, over the local mountains and through the Anza Borrego desert to the Salton Sea.

I don't imagine it being the most scenic trail I've ever done, but I like walking, I've lived here for 10 years and it seems like a very cool way to see the county. I drive through San Diego at 80 mph never slowing down to actually see what is around me. I think walking through it, urban and all, will be a neat experience.

From what I can tell there was this big initiative to complete this trail a bunch of years ago by the Sea to Sea Trail Foundation and then in 2005 the whole thing went belly up and nothing has been done since. The county/state is responsible so there isn't much a chance of it being completed as far as I can tell. Fortunately, even though the Foundation is defunct the website is still up and there is a lot of good information which has helped a ton to try and plan the hike.

The trail is really a connection of a lot of preexisting trails. Singletrack trail, dirt roads, desert washes, the old California Riding and Hiking Trail, paved roads and occasionally some outright crosscountry/bushwhacking. It's really anything that will connect whatever trails existed at one time together to link it from the Ocean to Salton Sea.

San Diego Sea To Sea Trail

The San Diego Sea to Sea Trail is 140 miles of natural beauty, running from the Salton Sea near the Anza-Borrego Desert, to the Pacific Ocean near Del Mar, California. No where else in the world can you experience such a diverse range of geographical and environmental features in just 140 miles!
