Discover scenic getaways just minutes from your home or office, where keeping up the pace simply means taking a deep breath, looking around, and enjoying the beauty of nature. It’s all in a day’s walk with Afoot and Afield in San Diego.
Come to the coast and join hosts Jerry Schad and Jessica Yellin as they tour three amazing hiking destinations - Tijuana River estuary, Point Loma’s Bayside Trail, and La Jolla Shores. Each area offers a distinctly different view of San Diego’s coastal waterways and chronicles our ever-changing relationship with the sea. Visit a wildlife refuge that is home to 340 species of birds, including the endangered Light-footed Clapper Rail; examine an ancient earthquake fault; explore lively tidepools at the water’s edge; and marvel at Point Loma’s unique fortifications, which recall San Diego’s rich military history. Afoot and Afield in San Diego is based on the book, Afoot and Afield in San Diego County by Jerry Schad.
