Lower Trestles Location and Parking

The surf contest is at Lower Trestles.

For free parking you have to exit off Interstate 5 at Cristianitos Exit in San Clemente.

Coming from North or South, there is only one way to access the entrance to Trestles, and that is via the I-5 San Diego Freeway.

From either direction, take the exit at Cristianitos and turn to head east (toward Jack-in-the-Box and the hills, away from the ocean).

There, you’ll find a large pay parking lot, along with public parking on nearby streets.

Two Main Ways to Get Trestles

Simply walk down the asphalt trail from the trailhead at Cristianitos Road, near where Cristianitos crosses over the Freeway.

Most will walk, bike, and skateboard the trail.

Beware of hordes of quick E-Bikes blowing by along the path.

Once the trail ends, follow the train tracks to the left until you reach the event site.

You can also park at San Onofre State Beach by exiting at Basilone Road, then head West to the entrance of San Onofre State Beach named ‘Surf Beach’.

There is a fee to drive into the State Park, and the walk is considerably longer.
