The Visitor Center Loop Trail is a 1.4 mile hike in Mission Trails Regional Park, easily accessible from the greater San Diego area, perfect for kids and all skill levels.

The Visitor Center Loop Trail is a well maintained, quick hike with shady spots scattered along the path. This hike is great for kids and dog owners. There is a great network of connecting trails if you wish to extend the distance!

Dogs are allowed on this trail but must be kept on leash. The trail is kept open year-round and features a river (typically a bit more full after it rains).
