The Inland Rail Trail runs alongside the Sprinter light rail service connecting Escondido to Oceanside. The 6.5-mile section in Escondido and San Marcos is the first segment complete, with a 7-mile continuation through San Marcos and Vista currently under construction. In the future, the trail will extend a total of 21 miles to a terminus at the Coastal Rail Trail on Wisconsin Avenue in Oceanside.
The setting for the Inland Rail Trail between Escondido and San Marcos is urban with the rail line on one side and parallel roads nearby. The trail gives access to Palomar College and the Escondido Transit Center, where it also meets the Escondido Creek Bike Path.
Free parking for the Inland Rail Trail is available at the Escondido Transit Center (700 W. Valley Parkway).
