San Diego Urban Canyons

One of the main features of San Diego’s geography are the many canyons which cross various portions of the county. We are fortunate that many of these canyons were preserved as open space as the city developed around them.  Most of the urban canyons are owned and managed by the City of San Diego.  Many of these canyons have multi-use trails which can be linked together for a unique urban trail experience. The neighborhood canyons of City Heights, North Park and South Park, Bankers Hill and more offer lots of exploring on trails.
