Walking to campus is recommended for those within a 1 mile radius of campus. If walking is not a feasible option for commuting, there are still options to explore campus by walking that will help you discover indigenous plants and CSUDH nature preserves.


When using walking as a form of commuting, safety is a crucial factor to constantly be aware of. Please ensure you pay attention to traffic when crossing streets, even when lights signal that you are allowed to cross. This safety video may help refresh your knowledge.

CSUDH Walking Trail

The Walking Trail allows participants to enjoy a flat two-mile loop around the western side of campus (including the Dignity Sports Health Park and the Dominguez Hills nature preserve). Learn more about the walking trail and our native landscape areas on campus on the Landscaping page!
