La Playa Trail Association was founded in 2005 to continue the work of the 1930's historians who erected six monuments along the historic La PlayaTrail that stretched from Ballast Point (the first port of San Diego), to the San Diego Mission and beyond.
There are 70 registered historic sites between Ballast Point and the Presidio.
Our goal is to reconstruct, refurbish, and add new markers that identify historic sites along the trail along with educating the public about Point Loma's history.
La Playa Trail follows the shore of Point Loma starting at Ballast Point and continuing north along Rosecrans Street to Old Town, across Mission Valley Nature Preserve to Frairs Road and eastward to Mission San Diego, and beyond. La Playa Trail has witnessed most of the early history of San Diego. Early European references to the Trail are found in the accounts of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo (1542) and Sebastian Vizcaino (1602). La Playa Trail has been in continual daily use by the Europeans since April 1, 1769, when the Spanish packet San Antonio arrived from La Paz as part of the advance party of the Serra-Portola Expedition, which colonized Alta California for Spain.
