Since the advent of minimalist shoes one of my go to trail shoes has been the Merrell Mix Master. The shoe has held up very well considering San Diego’s arid and rocky terrain. As with many other San Diego trail runners who went “minimalist” I have come to respect the jagged rocks of San Diego’s L [...]

We are very lucky in San Diego. We have great weather, beaches and awesome trails for running, hiking and biking. Most cities do not have so much open space so close. We do. We have trails within 5 minutes of anywhere you live in San Diego. Some are better than others but still, we have them. Some of the best kept trail secrets are the canyons of Clairmont. Known as the Tri-Canyons, Tecolote Canyon is a trail runners dream. The main canyon found at the end of Seaworld Drive/Tecolote Rd. provides 8-10 miles of jeep road, single track, rolling terrain and stream crossings
Nestled deep in the Chula Vista area is a well hidden trail secret. Otay Lakes is right next to the Olympic Training Center and provides trail runners a unique experience compared to most other San Diego trail runs. It’s flat! Normally San Diego trail are hilly due to the nature of the canyons. Rarely can a trail runner gallop along for miles without encountering a gluteal busting hill. In Otay Lakes you can give your hamstrings and Glutes a rest. The mostly single track trail provides lake views, tree cover and well groomed lakeside trail.
