Surface: Unpaved,moderately hilly to steep Length:3.0 miles Difficulty: Moderate Ascent:300' Located in North Carlsbad,these trails are some of the most extensive in the citywide trail system.They wind through a huge grove of mature eucalyptus trees planted many years ago for the railroad industry with the intention for the wood to be used in the construction of rail lines. However, it was determined that the wood was inferior to other varieties and not harvested for that purpose. Years later the city acquired the property and it is now enjoyed by hikers, picnickers, and nature enthusiasts seeking respite from the hustle and bustle of city life. The trail system does offer great views of the adjacent Buena Vista Lagoon and the Pacific Ocean.
