San Diego Bike trail similar to SART from Yorba Linda to HB

Hello:
Sometimes I ride the Santa Ana River trail from Yorba Linda to Huntington Beach and back. Is there a similar paved trail in San Diego?
i'm going to be down there for other things, and I figure I might as well throw the bike in the back of the station wagon and make the best of it.

there are a few concrete-lined river bike paths (sweetwater 54 fwy, ocean beach 8 fwy, oceanside 76 fwy) but with the exception of the oceanside 76 fwy one, they are less than 4 miles long. the oceanside one is about 8 miles long-i think. the 56 fwy one doesn't follow a river but a canyon and is about 5 miles long with a good little rise heading from west to east.

the silver strand bikeway from coronado to imperial beach/chula vista is the longest one at about 8/9 miles one way and is the most scenic since it has bay and ocean views the whole way.

fiesta island in the middle of mission bay near sea world has a flat, 4 mile loop with low, one-way traffic and is bike friendly.

the loop around lake miramar in the scripps ranch area is a pleasant 5 miles.

but if you feel comfortable doing so, the coastal ride along the 101 (our version of pch) is fantastic and is a must do. the area from ucsd north to oceanside pier is a good 20 miles one way and easy to turn around at any point.
