One of San Diego best short hikes

This approach (from the PLNU campus) starts high up the hill and offers a good cardio climb on the way back up. Gorgeous views and ocean breezes!

I really like this location and I visit here often. Nothing like the ocean while walking and hiking.

I come here a few times a week. I like pretty much everything about it. The ocean is great for your spirit.

Overall this was a nice walk with a great view. It is a combination of dirt path plus cutting onto the bicycle lane of the street. Overtime the bluffs have become unstable and it has caused the route to change from path to street. A lot of people like to watch the sunset here. Just always be careful when you get close to the edge you never know when it could collapse you rather be safe than sorry. Overall it was nice, but the reason for minus one star is the combination of walking on the road.

Beautiful, but lots of closed off areas

This is Not a trail just a walk on small cliff near the ocean. However, it’s beautiful.

Very easy trail. Literally a stroll at the beach. Peaceful and quiet. Not too much crowd. You can also run, bring your kids and dogs, and even surf (bring your surfboards!)

View of sunset was a 5... I rated lower due to construction that was underway. Parking lot closed and serious erosion near cliff edges. BE CAREFUL with children.

VIEWS! One of my favorite easy hikes. Not a loop tail. Parking can get annoying but if you are going to hike don’t complain if you have to walk 3 blocks :)
