The 7 bridges of San Diego is a nice 5 mile walk around & through Balboa Park and the surrounding neighbourhoods...
Allow for about 2 hours 'n change, as the crow flies...
We'll start out in Middletown at the Spruce Street Suspension Bridge.
Passing through Hillcrest, there is a nice coffee shop to stop at & quickly grab a cup for the road.
Next, we will go through University Heights, over the Vermont Street Bridge on our way to North Park.
At North Park, we will turn south, over the Georgia Street Bridge.
Then by way of the San Diego Zoo, and crossing over the Park Street Bridge, we will go through Balboa Park & over Laurel Street to Park West where we will find the First and Quince Street Bridges.
There is a lot to see and may be sudden & frequent stops for print making, so don't forget to bring a camera...
Wear comfortable clothing and a hat. Tennis shoes will be fine for this pilgrimage.
Also, bring a couple bottles of water and something to chew on.
It is not recommended to chew on/eat one's own hat or anyone else's for that matter.
There are no facilities at the trail head. Adjustments should be made prior to arrival.
