A Safe, Accessible Path for Walking, Running, and Biking
A plan to link Cardiff and Encinitas with a rail trail was killed by a City Council vote in March of 2016. The doomed plan envisioned a new mixed-use trail running just east of the railroad tracks, opening up the rail corridor to people of all ages and abilities. Walkers, runners, and cyclists would have had safe and easy access to the beach, Cardiff market areas, and downtown Encinitas.
Current state of trail site: San Elijo Avenue
