Probably the most scenic hike in San Diego with breathtaking views of the ocean and cliffs. We went with some friends visiting from New Jersey and everybody really enjoyed it. There are some fun side trails that offer different perspectives so I would definitely recommend doing some of them.

breath-taking views! Hike was a little too easy, but nice for sight seeing.

Not long trails but beautiful cliffside views

Beautiful hike which leads to the beach. Very easy but very crowded with tons of tourist.

Great hike for a family Vista in San Diego. This was a great half day activity during our vacation. Not too difficult, great scenery, and minimal preparation required.

Great trail with awesome views! Easy & quick, but if you go towards the Tide-pools you'll extend the hike & discover marine life. It's adjacent to the Torrey Pines gliders, which you'll see gliding above you throughout your Hike. Depending on the season, you'll stumble onto a *nude* beach ;)

Love this trail. So so beautiful. The California coast is hard to beat. Trail is very easy, but well worth it!

This is my very favorite trail to take all levels of hikers! The beauty of this hike is so amazing and easy! Even difficult trail hikers love it!

There’s parking on PCH but very difficult to find an empty parking space most days. We parked inside the park (parking was $15). The trails were easy to find and there’s pamphlets at the trail head so you can pick your trails. There was a LOT of traffic on the trails (Friday afternoon) but the views were amazing. The trails take you right down to the beach where you can walk around or jog along the water. We saw whales along the coast as we hiked back up. If you want an ocean view and don’t mind the heavy foot traffic, this is the place for you.

A beautiful and easy hike. Wonderful when it’s hot out east or anywhere. Start down the beach at low tide and hike up to go against traffic and the major crowds. Be sure to check the tides and enjoy!
