One of our members suggested that we hike the Florida Canyon. It has been done in the past. I have been to Balboa Park many many times in the years we have lived here. However I sadly admit that I never really have been to Florida Canyon off Morley Field. I decided to check it out! I hiked  “hither and thither”(is this really a word ?).

The trails are short and varied throughout the canyon off Florida Drive and intercept with each other. Additional hiking is readily available, also,on the more manicured green space past the tennis courts.  It was surprisingly delightful! And I was sorry I had not discovered it before. So let's give it a try!


More information: 3 miles or so

Dogs allowed on leash

Restrooms available

Bring water sunscreen and hat

Hiking poles are helpful in the canyon

Bring a chair and a nosh to visit afterwards



There many ways to get here. My suggestion is: take 163 South and get off at Park Boulevard. Turn left and go down Park Boulevard until you get to Zoo Drive on the left and Morley Field Drive to the right.  Turn right and continue past Florida Drive  to the entrance to Morley Field on the right. Park either in front of the tennis courts or take the first right into Morley Field towards the dog park and there's additional parking there.
