Nice views. More a walk than a hike. Lots of people. Wonderful breezes. Take the camera. Learn a little history.

The walk is easy, the view is incredible. This is an down and up trail, so be prepared to carry little ones who could make the trip down, but not back ;) Wide with a few rest stops along the way with benches. Sit down and watch jets take off from the naval base in Coronado, watch ship traffic come in and out of the bay, and soak in the incredible view of San Diego.

Really breezy, much cooler than inland. There was a beautiful ocean view the entire time. Elevation change is gradual making this an easier hike.
