Thank you for your patience and continued support of California State Parks as they work to limit everyone’s risk for exposure to COVID-19 in the outdoors. Currently, the Tijuana Estuary Visitor Center, its parking lot, restrooms, and Border Field State Park remain temporarily closed.

As a reminder, Californians are encouraged to avoid road trips and stay close to home, maintain physical distancing, wear a face covering when a physical distance of six feet from others who are not from the immediate household members cannot be maintained, and avoid congregating. Everyone has the responsibility to slow down the spread of COVID-19.

What is open now? The park is open daily from 7 a.m. to sunset for walking, hiking and biking. The following trails are open: River Mouth Trail, Visitor Center Trail, N. and S. McCoy Trails, and Clapper Rail Trail.

Here are some additional guidelines for locals visiting the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve: wear a mask and stay covered, stay safer at 6 feet apart, and keep clean by washing hands.

Statewide, California State Parks continues to work with locals on a phased and regionally-driven approach to increase access to state park units where compliance with state and local public health ordinances can be achieved. Even though the department has increased access across the State Park System, the need for Californians to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the outdoors remains critical.
