Oceanside Bike Trail (San Luis Rey)

Does anyone have any firsthand knowledge of whether or not the San Luis Rey bike trail floods beneath I-5 after heavy rains? If so, does that make it impassible?

Thanks.

the only place that trail gets "flooded" is the short cut fork to the beach just after you go under the 5 heading west, it dips down like a foot then short 15% grade to the street. When flooded you have to take the trail straight and it adds like 2 blocks distance wise.

it can get flooded but you can always bounce out/opt in regarding the start/end of hwy 76 on the oceanside end.
it's not like you hafta backtrack 7 miles then jump on the freeway but that's another get off my lawn rant.

Ha, but that's not flooding, that's the Marines.
