Coast to Crest trail, You can start at Jimmy Durante drive.
Linking Dal Mar To Julian
From Sea to the Rivers source, Coast to Crest Trail is a 55 Miles corridor thats connecting Del Mar with the Volcan mountain, the San Dieguito River’s source near Julian.
The trail highlights the San Dieguito River watershed, an area of land containing creeks, streams and other waterways that flow into the River. The River covers 346 square miles, and ends up at the Pacific Ocean.
The Goal has been to restore the healthy habitat that once graced the area such as freshwater and salt water marshes, native
grasslands, riparian, woodland and coastal scrubs. This restoration Project considers the planting of native plants for a functioning ecosystem.
I’ve seen fish jumping and Octopus hiding and Blue Heron, it’s quite a nature walk!

This is the first in a series of blogs that will focus on the happenings at local parks. Poinsettia Park, a beautiful 42 acre sprawling park located in South Carlsbad between Poinsettia Lane and Palomar Airport Road, just off Hidden Valley Road, is a busy place right now!
If you have driven by the park lately you may have noticed a lot of big dirt movers, men in hard hats and safety cones. Currently two new parking areas are being installed at the park, to be completed shortly. This is part of the master plan for the park and will be welcome by park users, especially during baseball games, heavy tennis times and summer concerts in the park.
Recently Poinsettia Park completed an addition of seven new tennis courts just over a year ago, bringing the total to ten lighted courts. Two years ago the tot play area was rehabilitated. The park also has lighted basketball courts, barbeque areas, walking/running trails throughout, lighted baseball fields, childrens’ play areas and a synthetic turf athletic field. It is the largest public tennis complex in the City of Carlsbad. In the summer Poinsettia Park is one of the parks to host Friday jazz concerts in the park.
The master plan for Poinsettia Park includes the addition of a Recreation Center (much like the one at Stagecoach Park), but due to current economic conditions that is on the back burner for now.
Many local residents, myself included, have wondered whether Poinsettia Park will ever open a dog park area. Well, according to a representative from the Parks and Rec Department for the City of Carlsbad, that is not planned for the immediate future. The closest city dog park is located Ann D. L’Heureaux Dog Park, just off of Carlsbad Village Drive, east of El Camino Real.
If any dog lovers are interested in working with me to petition the City Council for the addition of a dog park at a South Carlsbad Park, such as Poinsettia, Aviara, or other parks, please contact me! Carlsbad is not as dog friendly as some other San Diego cities, and it would be wonderful to help the City Council to lean toward correcting that.
Poinsettia Park is a beautiful park and has something for everyone, including many places to relax. Be sure to check my website soon for a review of more Carlsbad Parks! http://RachelLaMarRealEstate.com
