HARBAUGH SEASIDE Trails


Expansive Views of Coastal North County

WE SAVED THIS VIEW TOGETHER.

Harbaugh Seaside Trails is a 3-acre coastal overlook at the gateway between Cardiff-by-the-Sea and Solana Beach. This is a special place in coastal North County San Diego cherished for its open space and expansive marine views.

Its name honors a $1.15 million donation, that secured this property, made by The George and Betty Harbaugh Charitable Foundation. Read more about the Harbaughs.

Harbaugh Seaside Trails is a place for contemplation and enjoyment, dog walking, and a gathering spot for stunning sunsets over the ocean. It is adjacent to San Elijo Lagoon and creates an important buffer for protected wetland habitat. Positioned along the Pacific Coast Highway, it's a natural extension of the Coastal Rail Trail.

Plans are under way to create trails, a viewing deck, and a welcome area with commemorative tiles. Trail restoration and native habitat enhancement will begin once planning is finalized.

WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW

The property loan to secure this land has been fully repaid and was announced at the December 2016 Open House Celebration. The Conservancy & the Harbaugh Seaside Trails Committee are now working on the final plans for the property's restoration and views. If you attended the Open House, we appreciate the comments and vital public input made on these proposed features. 

As Build NCC highway and rail improvements are under way, the property area along the railroad access road is closed due to construction. Other areas, such as the overlook, are available for visitation on the property.
