Not really a hike but not really a walk either. Great training location with lots of options in side trails and such. My normal route covers about 6 miles.

Beautiful scenery through out the trail and ending with a beach walk back to the starting spot is a great cool down.

Easy. Easy. Easy.

This is a great easy access trail. Watch out for frisbee golfers and there was a cross country meet there on a Friday so we had to alter out route a little. Otherwise it’s a nice loop trail with clear signage.

Nice short hike. Free parking. A few little uphill parts of the trail but nothing too difficult.

Very nice on a beautiful day..

This is a very enjoyable trail and easy to trek. But there is not enough directions on where it starts and ends. You just have to guess at what you’re doing.

We did this around 8am it was perfect timing. The fog came in later so we had some great views. It’s started to get crowded around 930am.

Took a quick hike with the wife and hounds. Was a beautiful morning hike with alittle fog which made you escape from the busy city into the woods. Only problem is the parking lost was littered with remnants of the party the night before, and it looks as if they had a great time! If your in the area and are looking for a quick hike with your hounds. This one will do.

I take the shortcut trail going up on the right (west) side, after the housing area and the large water tank. This hike is only about three miles, but is great for getting the legs, heart and lungs pumping because of steep incline.

Breathtaking view especially at sunset. Of course a must on every drive down Hwy 1!

Good workout

Got there quite early (730am) and it was very foggy on the hike up but the temps were so mild it was perfect. The include was gradual but you get a good cardio workout.

Definitely epic views.

Best part - briskly walking the beach hoping to not get my shoes wet... which didn’t happen

Beautiful! This is ranked as easy but if it’s high tide and you can’t cut across the beach, you’ll have to go back the way you came; if you’re new to hiking, the gradual inclines will get you a bit out of breath. But still an easy, breezy hike.

When you need a trail to get you back into it after a 2 month summer hibernation. Off to Cuyamaca

We did this trail as a night hike and it was pretty awesome. May want to bring gloves as there is a ton of bouldering to be had.

No dogs?? I and a million other people walk their dogs on this paved trail every day wth

Great trail to bring out of state guests and friends.

Really well-maintained trail, nice variety in pathways, and beautiful views. Go AS EARLY as you can get there to enjoy some sense of solitude and beautiful light along the way.

For runners, a great place to practice decision-making for when to walk up steeps and when to run- and as a bonus, BOMBING downhill fun all the way.

Nice easy walking trail.

Nice trail. Beautiful views!

Easy hike, not very taxing at all. Stellar views, nice trail, cool trees. 10/10

Very short. $10 fee for parking if you park in the state park parking lot. And once you get to the walkway a large portion of it is closed off which was disappointing because it would be a much better view of the falls if we could go further out on the walkway/viewpoint. With that being said the portion of the walkway that was closed off did look very decrepit. But you’d think with the hundreds of dollars they make per day on parking alone that they’d fix the walkway of one of the most famous sights on Hwy 1 but I digress.
My suggestions would be to park along the highway to save the $10 (or pay and hope they fix the walkway at some point). I also think you may be able to see the falls from the Hwy just north of the parking lot. We missed it yesterday but are planning on stopping there today. It’s just a small turn out off the road but there were many people stopped there taking pictures back towards the direction of the falls.
