Torrey Pines is the most hiked trail on the coast, if I recall. It is nice out there. There is also Florida Canyon in the middle of SD, and another canyon that is nice right in Mira Mesa. Check them out.

Cowles Mountain for a quick mid-dayer is awesome, and on a clear day you can see all of east and south county, and sometimes as far as the ocean.

Also Laguna Mountain in east county is very nice.

Mt. Woodson and Iron Mt? off of the 67 near Poway

Pick up a Reader. They have a section called Roam A Rama where they show a different hike every week

A good spot to do a 5 mile hike and see lots of wild life is the south end of San Elijo lagoon. Pretty easy hike but lots to look at and very well kept.

Nice, I'll check out Iron Mtn (and then head all the way to JUlian for a pie)
I hear there's a viewfinder/binocular thing up there, where you can see for miles

I like good flat trails, so I'll stick to around the coast

There's some AMAZING hikes down through out the 78 up between Escondido and Ramona. A great book to have on hand to find all these trails is called "60 Hikes within 60 Miles". i'm attaching a link to it. Mt Woodson is a really nice hike, I live at the base of the mountain there. It can connect with the Blue Sky reserve that takes you around Lake Poway (takes you up the backside of Mt Woodson). I love to hike (if you couldn't tell) so I hope this bit of info is helpful.

Try the hike up Mt. Stonewall across from the Paso Picacho campground just outside of Julian and Lake Cuyamaca.
