Self-Guided Walking Routes

Get moving and get healthy as you walk through USD’s beautiful campus!  These self-guided routes range from approximately 0.3 miles to approximately 1.25 miles.  Routes vary and some include stairs and/or hills.  Choose your route based on distance or terrain, or link two or more together to make a more challenging walk.  Except for down the hill on the west side of the Shiley Center for Science and Technology, all loops are on extant pedestrian ways.  Both the West and the Main Campus loops have no stairs and are relatively flat.
