The Inland Rail Trail runs alongside the Sprinter light rail service connecting Escondido to Oceanside. The 10-mile section in Escondido, San Marcos and parts of Vista is the first segment complete, with a 3-mile continuation through Vista to North Ave and Melrose Drive 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, San Marcos and Vista 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).
