We were in San Diego for a conference and stopped in the evening. A bit busy but everyone had there own thing going: yoga, surfing, dog walking, photography. Stayed to watch the sunset of course- was not disappointed.

A gorgeous overlook of the ocean at sunset, but not so much a hike.

This isn't a hike, it's more of a stroll along the beach, but the view is amazing and perfect for sunsets. However, please don't ignore the danger signs. My best friend's cousin was scrambling there, fell, and barely survived with a broken back, rib cage, face, and damaged internal organs. He had to be airlifted, and it went on the news and everything. It's relatively safe BUT DON'T IGNORE THE SIGNS

Beautiful views of the beach and ocean. There's a large parking lot. Only drawback is that the trails are not clearly marked and it can be confusing. Some graffiti which is really unfortunate and a few people walking around with their dogs off leash. Still amazing views for being a free park.

Such a short adventure. We walked through some caves and emerged to the edge of a cliff. Had to jump off and swim back. More of a "mosey around and explore" than a hike I think. But def a good time!

Awesome view and run. the cliff parts are a bit sketchy, so I used the sidewalk on the opposite side. stairs going down to the water were crazy cool.

More of a walk then a hike but it's so beautiful and close to us that we come here on a regular basis. We like to walk from OB along Sunset Cliffs Blvd all the way down some of the cliffs, then we do a little 30 minute workout, take in the views, then return. It's a gorgeous place to come and let all your worries drift away.
