This was a great hike. A good workout but not too hard. It feels way out there but really just a few minutes off the freeway. Pay close attention to the trail markers to stay on the 10 mile loop. We got lost the first time we did this and ended up hiking a total of 14 miles because we had taken a wrong turn at some point.

Nice trail. We did the 6 mile loop. It was a liitle hot but a nice breeze. Beautiful views. Clean portable toilets.

hard walk, dont try this trail un the Summer, no river, no waterfall

Great flat trail which brings exercise and tranquility into a nice mix. Lots of plants and water foul and a great nature center that also has a free book exchange library.

Great little trail! Took our 3 teens and they really enjoyed climbing they the canyon. Hidden gem in the hills of solana beach. Easy parking, trail is well marked and pet friendly up to climbing but you can turn back w your dog. Glad we took the time to check it out!

This trail was awesome!! Nice view almost all around, no shade however is worthy

Fun, beautiful hike! We saw many coyotes and rabbits! Very scenic and lots of shade. I would definitely recommend to others who are looking for a long, somewhat challenging at times, hike!

alot of fun. the trail is supposed to be a 1 way in, 1way out. so when you get to the sign... go to the right through the canyon, not the viewpoint. unless you just want to look out from the viewpoint. when you get into the narrows, you will understand why its a 1 way trip. but alot of fun. can do it over n over.

There are a few places to park along the trail. Its great if you're looking for something flat. there's lots of shade so its great as a trail to walk/jog on a hot or humid day. very dog friendly and relatively wide paths. only downside is that it's close to highway 5 freeway and there's some noise from that as you get closer west.

Perfect hike for beginners, multiple trails let’s you choose how long you’d like to hike for.

Pleasant mellow walk along the lagoon. There use to be motorcycle tracks back in the day where the turn around point and visitor center are located today. Times change

Easy hike, good for after work, which is exactly what we did.

Park at Chinese community church and head down the trail.

Awesome trail, you definitely get your moneys worth on this steady steady climb. Awesome views at the top

amazing placer

Very fun hike. Perfect for kids.

Not a bad hike! Very sandy though. While dogs are allowed on a leash they aren’t allowed in the slot canyon. There’s not a sign that tells you no dogs in the slot canyon until you’re already in. Plus it’d be difficult to go with a dog in the canyon anyways.

We live close to these tide pools! Absolutely beautiful!

However, this picture is of cabrillo national monument tide pool area that is off limits.

This picture is not of la jolla tide pool area.

The straightaway in the map is a series of steep incline and declines. The curvy portions navigate around the elevation to make it easier to work with.

Nice hike but kind of creepy is too alone

My 1st favorite place to hike. Every time we go flora and fauna is different and beautiful. Birding is great too.

Nice moderate hike then gets more difficult hiking up to the peak.

Hiked 6/18/18 on a Monday. It was a nice hike to Lake Ramona. Beginning shaded and flat. When you reach the end of the tree line is the last of the shade and you will also start hiking on a gradual incline. It does get steeper towards the top. When you hit the asphalt the incline is more challenging. There are nice views along the way and at the top but what we all didn't care for was the water station, the power lines, the electric station, and the guard rail at the top. I understand they are necessary, it just took away from the beauty of nature. Bring your water and sunscreen. parking not a problem and easy to find.

First time here. Came with the wife and 3 friends. A short but fun little hike. Did the loop twice. Would definitely come back.

Nice trail for skill levels. Pretty green and pleasant. Trail could be marked better.

Hiked this trail for the first time over the weekend with my 7 year old daughter! We had a blast! Definitely will be going back.
