Balboa Park is first on our list for a reason; it has so many running paths to offer with varying levels of difficulty and great views and scenery. With such a versatile layout, you can make your run at Balboa Park as short or as long as you would like. There are signs around the park with maps to a plethora of trails and paths and they even offer digital maps online. Once you experience a great Balboa Park run, there’s no question why it’s a favorite among San Diego locals.

Mission Bay is another beautiful spot on our list all about the scenery. It’s also another great “create-your-own run” location. There are many parking lots to start from around the bay that offer paths at varying lengths. Marathon trainers love this running spot because, at its longest, Mission Bay provides a loop that’s just over 12 miles. Insider tip: plan your run around sundown for a stunning sunset view during your run.
