Lindo Lake County Park

Map of TRACK Trail at Lindo Lake

The Lindo Lake County Park TRACK Trail is an easy 1.4 mile loop around the lake. On your walk, be sure to check out the 17 fitness stations located along the trail. If you want to do more than hike, the park also features two play areas, a skate park, an historic boat house, and picnic pavilions.

The trail offers great opportunities to see the various wildlife that is attracted to the lake. As one of San Diego county's few natural lakes, birds of many kinds can be found here. If you'd rather learn about the wildlife beneath the surface, the lake also has opportunities for fishing
