Come along for an afternoon walk in the eucalyptus wooded Hosp Park hills. The area was planted with eucalyptus trees in 1908 for railroad ties use but found the wood to be an unusable for such and later abandoned. The route is a near 3 mile loop route mostly on dirt trails with some short hill inclines. It’s an easy to moderate workout. Plan on 1.5 hours. No portopotties available. Dogs on leash are OK. Shortcuts are available if you don’t wish to walk the full 3 miles.
Directions: From Hwy 78 exit onto Jefferson St and go south. At the stoplight intersection go straight through which becomes Marron Rd. (Jefferson turns to go by Buena Vista Lagoon). On Marron Rd, left lane, follow the curve to the next light which is Monroe St. Turn left into the mall area drive. Go to the end and turn right by the bus terminal area and come back in the lot towards Marron Rd. Park in the lot along Marron Rd near Monroe, the northeast corner of that intersection.
Alternative routes: El Camino Real, south of hwy 78, intersects Marron Rd. Go west to Monroe St and right turn into mall lot as above.
Or, Carlsbad Village Rd intersects Monroe St. then head north to Marron Rd and straight into mall lot.
