In addition to telling the story of 16th century exploration, the park is home to a wealth of cultural and natural resources. Join us and embark on your own Voyage of Discovery.
We discovered this trail our first day visiting San Diego and it remains one of our favorite go-to adventures as now locals. It has everything you would want. Ocean views, nature, a well-manicured trail, native CA plants to see and animals to observe. All in an underrated, hardly packed package. Most visitors don't even see it.
