Great little trail. Very "slippery" from loose sand. Many people went barefoot. Hiking sandals would be best. Take your beach stuff and hang out at the beach for a while. We went around 1/2 and watched dolphins for about and hour. A quarter mile down is blacks beach/nude beach.

Beautiful hike for a beautiful day. The hike is definitely moderate and in some spots the trail is very narrow and scary. Cool to watch the hang gliders and all the nudists on the beach. Wear sunglasses or they may think you're staring :-P

A hidden treasure, the view is amazing!!! It is breathtaking.

short, but challenging along a heavily eroded path.

Very Fun trail! Some parts are much easier bare foot & the less you carry the better. Be sure to enjoy the beach at the end.

Honestly one of the best trails in San Diego. Got to catch the beautiful San Diego sunset. It's challenging if you can't step up too high, it's slippery because the sand is a little loose but it's not too challenging for a average afternoon hiker. A must go !!!

This trail is definitely hard. I don't know how surfers carry their boards!! Very much worth the views and surf. The homes along this trail are fun to look at too. If you ever off to the right, going up hill provides great views, as noted by other users. I met two locals who said the trail is much more trafficked lately than in years past. The place was crawling with folks on a Saturday, but I had no trouble getting parking on the road. Google maps takes you to a large business building as the entrance - not where you want to be. Further south in the residential area is best to start at.
