I Want To! Map

Great trail with awesome views! Easy & quick, but if you go towards the Tide-pools you'll extend the hike & discover marine life. It's adjacent to the Torrey Pines gliders, which you'll see gliding above you throughout your Hike. Depending on the season, you'll stumble onto a *nude* beach ;)

Easy walk! Stunning views, cool breeze! Make sure you bring your water bottle. Enjoy!

No dogs allowed. Was disappointed about that!

One of the best hikes I’ve ever done! Beautiful views and tons of options. Would love to go back and do a trail run next time!

Love this trail. So so beautiful. The California coast is hard to beat. Trail is very easy, but well worth it!

Amazing views! Short trail with steps but worth the hike. Get there early to avoid the crowds.
No flip flops, slippery at times if you get down to the water.

Something scenic

Easy, but boring for me minus the suspension bridge

Best trail in SD by far :) definitely a hidden gem

This is my very favorite trail to take all levels of hikers! The beauty of this hike is so amazing and easy! Even difficult trail hikers love it!

Great trail, beautiful views, fun to climb down the cliffs into the tide pools and check out the caves. There were many visitors and many children of all ages also climbing down. Family friendly, and adult friendly as well.

There’s parking on PCH but very difficult to find an empty parking space most days. We parked inside the park (parking was $15). The trails were easy to find and there’s pamphlets at the trail head so you can pick your trails. There was a LOT of traffic on the trails (Friday afternoon) but the views were amazing. The trails take you right down to the beach where you can walk around or jog along the water. We saw whales along the coast as we hiked back up. If you want an ocean view and don’t mind the heavy foot traffic, this is the place for you.

Scary but so worth it.

Great trails, nice views. Lost 1 star for the high price of entrance ($20).

decent trail, easy walk to stream. this hike tends to be crowded around the stream with multiple routes to get there.

Beautiful, slightly out-of this-world trail for experienced risk takers. Three very sketchy places where “horizontal” part is 1-2” wide and made of loose sand. Cling to the wall with your belly but don’t grab what appears to be a good hold too hard – you may end up with a detached piece of sandstone in your hand. Prayers won’t help traction – wear good shoes. Although locals claim that doing it barefoot is the best (not for me). Don’t start the 1st narrow part (either way you go) if not sure, you may find yourself in an impossible situation. Consider yourself warned.

This isn't a hike, it's more of a stroll along the beach, but the view is amazing and perfect for sunsets. However, please don't ignore the danger signs. My best friend's cousin was scrambling there, fell, and barely survived with a broken back, rib cage, face, and damaged internal organs. He had to be airlifted, and it went on the news and everything. It's relatively safe BUT DON'T IGNORE THE SIGNS

Not much of a hike but so much much fun and absolutely beautiful

Desent flat hike, waterfall was more of a stream but good hike

This is.a great trail with great views of San Diego Bay that’s about 2 miles round trip. It is almost completely downhill for the first mile and of course you must come back up for the second mile. I notice that it says wheelchair friendly....I don’t think so. The first quarter of a mile is paved. The rest is dirt and rocks.

Best views from the side trails.

Nice hike with great ocean views, tide pools, and interesting rock formations and cliffs.

So beautiful!!!

Beautiful views of the beach and ocean. There's a large parking lot. Only drawback is that the trails are not clearly marked and it can be confusing. Some graffiti which is really unfortunate and a few people walking around with their dogs off leash. Still amazing views for being a free park.

awesome trail!

For locals only unless you are experienced! The path is eroding away, so hike at own risk! Have fun though!!

Has eroded a little bit since the last time I did it. Wear shoes with good traction!

Fun trail with beautiful sights! Definately suggest getting there early to walk around and stay until sunset.

Amazing views! Easy walk, but again such astheics.
