Mission Trails Regional Park encompasses 7,220 acres of both natural and developed recreational areas. Its rugged hills, valleys and open areas represent a San Diego prior to the landing of Cabrillo in San Diego Bay in 1542. Centrally located and only eight miles northeast of downtown San Diego, Mission Trails Regional Park provides a quick, natural escape from the urban hustle and bustle.
Mission Trails Regional Park has been called the third Jewel in the City of San Diego Park System. Along with Balboa Park and Mission Bay Park, it provides San Diego residents and visitors a way to explore the cultural, historical, and recreational aspects of San Diego. Started in 1974, Mission Trails Regional Park has become one of the largest urban parks in the United States. Originally used by the Kumeyaay, the park is the site of the Old Mission Dam, built to store water for the Mission San Diego de Alcala.
San Carlos is located at the eastern edge of the City of San Diego. Named for one of the ships sent by the Spaniards to explore California, the area is mostly residential and many of the ranch-style single family homes were built in the 1960s and 70s. Originally a rural area, San Carlos retains its small town rural feel even though it is within the boundaries of the City of San Diego. Lake Murray, part of Mission Trails Regional Park, is a major attraction for residents providing picnicking spots, baseball fields, tennis courts and other facilities. A paved path follows the contours of the lake and offers perfect conditions for walking, bicycling and rollerblading. Fishing is allowed on certain days, and the lake yields bluegill, catfish, bass and trout. The area is blessed with many birds and attracts bird watchers from all over the world. There is also a well-established golf course that borders the lake with views of Cowles Mountain from each fairway.
Cowles Mountain, also part of the Mission Trails park, offers visitors the ability to enjoy a desert-like climate without actually leaving the city. The mile and a half hike to the top yields an excellent view of San Diego, Mexico and the Pacifi c Ocean. There are hiking, mountain biking and equestrian trails on the mountain–the highest point within the city limits of San Diego.
