San Diego Hikes 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 ;)

Fun easy morning trail

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!

It’s just walk not a hike

I did this hike on a Tuesday afternoon and the trail was pretty empty. It's a great hike in the middle of the city. The first half is fairly flat with a few optional side trails, and the second half was full of some steep and challenging hills with great views from the top.

It's been several years since I visited this trail and now I remember why. The trail was full of runners and packs of cyclists so most of our morning was spent trying to get out of their way as they came passed. We started before 8:00am and there were already a lot of people on the trail. If you are looking for peace and quiet, I do not recommend this hike.

Something scenic

nice area. Some parts be very wary during rattlesnake season

Not trafficked often which is nice for the pup

Standard loop. Not too exciting for me

This was an amazing trail.. there are many different trails to take on.

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!

It was a long walk with an 11 and 5 y/o but they did It!
We went on a Sunday and it was busy.
The falls were pretty and we enjoyed some of the small off trails by the creek.

A nice trek indeed. You are surrounded by nature's beauty throughout the different stages of the trail. The only thing to watch out for are the horse/dog droppings. Will definitely be back to this trail again.

Nice, short, easy hike with great ocean views.

We went with two 7yrs old kids on a breezy bright San Diego morning. I was skeptical at first. Thinking the kids was going to whine and not make it to the goal.

We all had fun. Really enjoyed the scenery and the walk was easy for everyone.

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.

Very busy with locals as well as tourists. Beautiful viewd.

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.

Nice mix of easy walking and some inclines. There wasn’t much water throughout but the beautiful rock formations and variety of flat open spaces and bush laden trails was totally worth it! While there were a fair amount of folks at the trail, the space is large enough that it was still peaceful.

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.
