I love this trail! It's short and sweet, but very scenic. Good beginning hike or for taking family/friends that aren't regular hikers.

Short trail but great views. If you want to get a little exercise at Cabrillo it's nice.

Gravel trail in Cabrillo National Monument that starts near the lighthouse. No beach access from the trail.

Very scenic with a panoramic view. Very easy to walk and fast. It costs $10 to get in but it's worth the trip.

If you want a short and seabreezy "hike" with amazing views of the San Diego harbor, THIS is your "hike". It's more of a walk, really, just steep in parts, but the path is broad and well maintained. It's very open and literally the coolest hike in San Diego. (It's mostly in the shade and cooled by the ocean air.)
It's ten bucks to get into the park, but twenty for the pass which is totally worth it. I'm guessing the entrance fee keeps the crowds down, even on holiday weekends.

Great views, but it's a pretty short one. Recommend doing it twice.

Solid hike for beginners looking to get their blood pumping. The warm-up is the way down. The cardio hits on the way back up. Can't beat the view!
