San Diego River Bicycle and Pedestrian Path in Mission Valley
San Diego, being part of the Southern California car culture, has never been an inherently friendly city for those without a car. Complaints include busses that are too slow, a Trolley that doesn’t go where it’s needed most (airport, UTC), a lack of sidewalks in many neighborhoods and commercial areas, and a lack of walking and biking paths.
One of my favorite inland walking/biking paths (away from the shoreline and beaches) is the San Diego River Bicycle and Pedestrian Path in Mission Valley.
There is a path on both the north and south sides of the river. They were built back in the 1970s with the intent of developing in a style similar to San Antonio’s River Walk. That never happened due to significant opposition to development. Many of the trees are 40+ years old and overhang the walkway, making for a somewhat dreamy walk or ride even on the sunniest of days. My original picture of one such area and three of my interpretations following:
