Sorrento Valley Road Trail Description

The Sorrento Valley Road Trail is a paved, two-lane section of road that was closed to traffic in the 1990s when CDOT built an interchange between State Route 56 and Interstate 5. In 1998 the road was reopened to pedestrians and bicyclists only. The 1-mile route provides an important non-motorized link between San Diego's north coastal areas and industrial parks in the Sorrento Valley.

The route runs from just north of Carmel Mountain Road to I-5 near where it meets Carmel Valley Road. A short segment on the southern end is open to traffic servicing the San Diego Metropolitan Waste Water Department, which you pass along the way. The wetlands on the other side of the facility are part of Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve.

On the north end, just east of I-5, is the State Route 56 Bike Path; unfortunately, there is no linking path for now, although long-term plans call for the connection to be made.

Parking and Trail Access

There is no official parking for the Sorrento Valley Road Trail, but there are some on-street spaces at the southern end just south of the barriers. At the northern end, there's a park and ride lot; please obey any parking regulations.

this is a great connector

The trail is beautiful but also a great connector from UCSD to Torrey Pines in a really nice loop.

A Practical Trail for locals. Could use a surrey coat on the old road surface. 20 Oct 15
