About the walk
This 1.8-mile walk is comprised of sidewalks with well-defined dirt paths through the Silver Strand State Park. Loews Coronado Bay Resort is located just north of the Coronado Cays and south of the state park. There are restrooms, benches, and picnic tables along the way on both the ocean and bay side. Rich railroad history in San Diego is abundant but nowhere more so than here, where a steam train ran through the area connecting the Hotel del Coronado with the Coronado Pier, Imperial Beach, the South Bay Saltworks, National City, and San Diego. In 1931, Spreckels Holding Company gave the land that became Silver Strand State Beach and State Park to the California State Parks Commission.
