This paved trail along Escondido Creek can help residents commute to the Escondido Transit Center or to local services, as well as providing a pleasant opportunity for recreation. The trail connects to the Inland Rail Trail at the Transit Center, which will eventually run along the Sprinter line all the way to the coast in Oceanside, but currently offers a convenient pathway to San Marcos and Vista.
The creek is channelized through urban Escondido, and the trail hugs the edge. A small gap in the trail between North Quince Street and North Broadway was eliminated in 2019 thanks to a "Missing Link" project, which created new trail and protected bike lanes to allow for a much more seamless experience. Further improvements are in the works thanks to grant money from the state Parks & Recreation Department, which will extend the trail slightly and improve large segments of the existing route, with work scheduled to start in 2022 or 2023.
Free parking for the Escondido Creek Bike Path is available at the Escondido Transit Center (700 W. Valley Parkway).
