Exploring the Concrete Jungle's Hidden Trails


Oceanside RV Resort

If your spring trips include more city visits than woodland visits, don’t despair when it comes to getting your steps in. National Walking Day was this month, but we’re encouraging everyone to get out and walk this month and beyond. Walking has plenty of health benefits which include lowering the risk of heart disease and helping to stabilize blood sugar. If you’re big city bound this month, check out these urban walking trails:

The Seven Bridges Trail in San Diego is an urban hike that takes walkers past some of the best parts of the city, including Balboa Park and the beautiful Inez Grant Parker Memorial Rose Garden. All in, this “urban hike” is roughly a 5.7-mile loop and all of it paved, crossing over some of the city’s oldest and historic bridges.

Indianapolis-bound? Check out the Canal Walk, a pedestrian-friendly walking route along the downtown waterfront. This 3-mile loop has many highlights including murals and outdoor sculptures while taking you past, or to, some of the city’s main attractions, shops and restaurants.

Forest Park in Portland, Oregon is one of the country’s largest urban forests at roughly 5,000 acres. So, if you’re visiting Portland, step out of the city and into the forest without having to travel far. There are over 80 miles of trails but if you’re looking for a quick break to trade buildings for trees, check out the 2.8-mile Skyline Cruise Loop.

The Mission Reach portion of the San Antonio River Walk, a 10-mile stretch of the famed Texas city walkway, offers urban hikers views of native grasses, wildflowers, a few historic missions and outdoor art installations.
