This is a privately owned plot of land along the beach in La Jolla. UC San Diego owns and operates the area. It is closed from sunset to sunrise. There is no beach access via this trail. Although it is privately owned, it is open to the public.

This is a great little walking trail with some amazing views. Yes this is private property, but it is open to the public, and monitored via surveillance cameras. My favorite part of this walk is the view of the ocean. Could be a great place to watch the sunset.

If you look at my recording you will see the current loop that you are able to do on this trail. All other paths are currently closed for habitat restoration.

Please respect all the ropes and signage telling you where you can and cannot be. Many people like jumping the ropes to get on the cliff edge. Don't be the person that ruins it for everyone else. If the cliffs were stable those ropes most likely would not be there.

Good way to experience the flora and fauna of the coast. Even got to see a few lizards crossing the path. And the view is spectacular. Very nice little walk.

Wonderful cliff top ocean views and peaceful trail that I should give 5 stars. But a rattlesnake on the trail as thick as my kids forearm gave me more bio-
diversity than I like.

Great View. Very short easy hike on top of the cliffs.

This small hike is worth it for the views. I recommend a sunset hike.
