Biking and Walking

We are working on a number of programs to encourage people to get around town using "people power" rather than fuel or electricity. Together, these programs make up something called the Carlsbad Active Transportation Strategy.

Bike Month

Each May, Carlsbad celebrates Bike Month in partnership with SANDAG to promote the benefits of biking in our community. Find out more.

Walk+Bike Carlsbad

Walk+Bike Carlsbad promotes walking and bicycling to and from the Village, Barrio and beach areas as well as within greater Carlsbad. Join us for bi-monthly walks and bike events throughout the city to learn more about the city’s trail network, explore local destinations and meet new people. Carlsbad Walks meetups are a partnership between the City of Carlsbad and the nonprofit organization Circulate San Diego, and Carlsbad Bikes meetups are a partnership between the city and the nonprofit San Diego Bicycle Coalition.

Trails Master Plan

The Trails Master Plan, currently in development, outlines strategies to make it safer, more convenient, and more enjoyable for people to walk, hike and bike in Carlsbad, whether for recreation or transportation. The updated plan will reflect new trails and incorporate changes in the city’s trail system. The Trails Master Plan will also include design guidelines, identify priority projects and will update the citywide trails map.
