Otay Valley Regional Park extends 13 miles through the Otay Valley from west of I-5 along the Otay River to the Lower and Upper Otay Lakes. The trail from the Rios Avenue trailhead passes through coastal sage scrub and riparian woodland. Often seen birds are Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Mallard, Western Scrub-Jay, Song Sparrow, California Towhee, Spotted Towhee, and Bewick’s Wren. Easy walking on a well-maintained trail. Restrooms available.
