Oceanside has a bicycle and walking trail called the San Luis Rey Trail/Blue Bikes Program.  The trail itself is 7.2 miles long one-way and follows along the San Luis Rey River.  There are no motorized vehicles allowed on this trail, so it is safe for everyone, and relatively flat.  Horses are not allowed on the trail either.  Dogs are allowed but must be on a leash and the owner�s are respectful and pick up after them.1  The clean water program also is a big deal in Oceanside.  This program is designed to improve the water quality of the creeks, rivers, lakes, and beaches in the city, as well as comply with federal, state and local regulations.  The city outlines what happens with runoff and describes its importance to everyone.  Even though Oceanside is a smaller city, they are taking steps to do their part for both the environment and their residents.
