DescriptionThe Mission Valley Access to the San Diego River Trail or Ocean Beach Bike Path, depending on who you ask, is perfect if you find yourself inland and need access to a great trail. The trail runs for about 4 miles until it dead ends at the ocean in Ocean Beach. If you're looking for more mileage you can access Mission Bay easily by crossing the river as you approach the beach. There's not very much shade here so start early or late, and bring water if you're going to be out for a while, it's hard to come by in some areas. Parking in the residential area or the baseball fields is best when accessing the trail from this side. Bathrooms located at the Ocean Beach Access.
