Looking for two recommendations. We're staying down in OB and Rachel and I want to run 18ish miles preferably on trail hopefully within an hour drive of OB (the closer the better). Any ideas?
I don't know OB very well, and assume there's not much nearby.
Also, if you know of any decent options for take out food near OB I've got to get food for 13 that's hopefully not pizza. That might be the longer shot, know you were pretty well north of there, but might as well ask!
if i have one recommendation for food down that way it's Phil's BBQ. legendary! It's in point loma so super close: https://www.philsbbq.net/phils-bbq-locations.html
there are also tons of taco shops of course that you can't go wrong with.
for running around there the closest to you would be Mission Trails Regional Park. All kinds of loops you can run out there with plenty of climbing. kind of reminds me of Green Mountain in lakewood but bigger... and a lot dryer. it's about 13 miles from OB.
and dude... if you have time you have to hit modern times brewery. it's also in point loma. they are probably making the best beer in san diego right now and have all kinds of good stuff you can only get at the brewery.
Looking through MTRP, I've even been in there before! Ran Cowles and Pyles and (I think) S. Fortuna a LONG time ago, like maybe 7 years ago. Super close to my Gramps' place, like 2 miles.
Don't forget Pizza Port OB.
