Quick Synopsis:

Guajome Regional Park (or Guajome County Park) is a nice little wilderness in Oceanside, Ca. Day use hours are 0930 to sunset, though I’ve never had issues running in earlier than that. This park is near my parents house so I do a lot of easy trail runs here. There are 4.5 miles of well maintained trails with a few nice hill kickers throughout. There is a nice lake to run around too. You cannot get lost in here and the park is not too highly trafficked though you will run into other people. If you need to do more mileage, simply reverse course and it feels like a completely different run. There’s plenty of variety in the park, from forested single track, to exposed little climbs, but you will almost always be able to see neighborhoods and hear vehicle traffic. Overall I wouldn’t necessarily go out of my way to run here (unless you are KOM hunting), but if you are local it’s a great change of pace from running along the roads with a view really nice views towards Camp Pendleton.
