Hiking Inn to Inn
What is going on with the San Clemente to Oceanside route? Do we walk or bus through Camp Pentelton?
Camp Pendelton has been inconsistent with their rules regarding hikers. Some people who have hiked the San Clemente to Oceanside Walkabout have reported that they checked in at the north entrance to the base and were allowed to hike through. Others said they were refused entrance on foot. Bikes are still allowed. You may want to call ahead and try to get a straight answer.
If you are refused, we suggest you return to the Las Pulgas Rd. exit off the San Diego Freeway and call a ride hailing service (Uber, Lyft) or a taxi. The hike from San Clemente to the base is spectacular.
Thanks so much Tom.
