Meet In Mall Parking Lot At NE Corner Of Marron Rd & Monroe St.

A Covid Testing Station is in that lot too.

Meet at GPS: 33.17673, -117.33680

Come along for a nice afternoon wooded walk in Hosp park hills. The area was planted with eucalyptus trees in 1908 for railroad ties use but found the wood to be unusable for such. Now only 53 acres are left for city park and trails.  Its a 3 mile loop route mostly on dirt trails with some short hills. Plan on 1.5 hours. No portapotties available. Dogs on leash are OK.

Directions:  From Hwy 78 exit onto Jefferson St and go south. At the stoplight intersection go straight through which becomes Morron 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, bypass the Covid test line (if any) but come into that section. Park in the lot along Marron Rd near Monroe, the northeast corner of that intersection.

Alternatives: El Camino Real, south of hwy 78, intersects Marron Rd going west to Monroe St and into the mall lot.

Or, Carlsbad Village Rd intersects Monroe St. then head north to Marron Rd and straight into the mall lot.
