Very nice on a beautiful day..

Saw a lot of amazing plants.

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.

This trail has a beautiful lookout but there are a lot of steps.

Beautiful scenes with an element of adventure and climbing. we loved this quick and easy to get to trail.

What a special “canyon niche” this is, in Solana Beach, of all places! Must enter thru North Rios Street - San Elijo Lagoon. Definitely, a “one way” short “climb, with a few unexpected photo ops along the way.

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.

Beautiful hike along the beach!

Everyone should come out and hike this trail that leads to a fun little adventure.

Great trail to bring out of state guests and friends.

Nice easy walking trail.

Nice trail. Beautiful views!

Beautiful beach trail. Keep an eye on the tide though if you’re planning on walking back on the beach.

Parking was the only issue, so get there early. The trail was nice & easy with amazing views. The trail by itself took about an hour.

A classic and iconic trail. Simple as that.

Many sick photo ops

Easy hike, beautiful views, cool plants and terrain

Whenever my husband and I vacation in Encinitas, we go to Torrey Pines, not so much for a “workout” because the trail is really easy, but for the views! Gorgeous!

Really beautiful beach

easy and beautiful overlooking the ocean. some climbing good shoes suggested

So beautiful! definitely recommend

Been living here my whole life and didn’t know this trail existed until this plastic summer, hidden from the hustle and bustle of Del Mar and Solana Beach with beautiful scenery and fun cave hiking. Pretty narrow but very kid friendly.

We went up the hill first and walked through many of the offshoot trails before going back down along the beach. Great trail. Loved it.

Rating this a 5 because it’s so close to Solana Beach/Cedros Ave, but you feel completely out of any city. The slot is really cool! I was wearing my 14 month old in a backpack and alone, didn’t see anybody else there, and halfway through the slot I got a little worried about how steep it might be for me. I followed my gut and turned around and went up the other side. Saw pictures on insta that some people brought their kids in there and had no problems, but didn’t want to take the chance since I was alone. Will definitely be coming back soon just to make it through or trade off watching the kiddo. I went on on weekday morning and hardly anybody on the trail, I’m sure it’s busy on the weekend though so start early or early evening for a sunset view.

Very cool trail! The trails that go under the freeway are temporarily closed while they work on the overpass. The slot canyon is strenuous but fun, great place for photos.

Very easy trail with many different branching paths. I feel like there’s always something new to explore!

Beautiful Trail, great for early morning runs!

Beautiful and easy trail.
