Great hike! Very easy if you walk! Lots of different routes to go which is nice for seeing different things. But I did have to PAY THREE DOLLARS IN CASH

Nice long but easy hike. Pretty views of the river along the way. Unfortunately it's tick haven right now. Also there was quite a bit of evidence of snakes on the trail. Be extra cautious with dogs and horses!

Good trail to walk. “Waterfall” wasn’t much. But overall it was nice.

This is in a national park and you have to pay to get in. I wish I would have read this before driving out here without money on me. Maybe another day.

Walked and ran some of this “trail” which actually an all paved walkway. Some parts of the path do not allow bikes/skateboards/scooters etc but people did anyway. Flat and easy path. Kid and dog safe. There are homeless along the path but not many and they didn’t bother anyway. If you have to go the bathroom there at least three public restrooms along the way. The harbor one (off the path near the hornblower ships) was the cleanest. I parked at the Embarcadero Marina Park parking lot, which is metered pay. Use a credit card (easiest) and it’s for 3 hours. Plenty of time to walk/run the path.

Peaceful trail with breathtaking views. Information signs about local wildlife and a few WWII-era structures keep the trail interesting, as do the natural surroundings themselves. I saw birds, bees, and even a small snake slithering across the trail. And the exposed yellow sandstone in one spot is really pretty. The all-downhill, then all-uphill factor makes it exhausting near the end, and I don't care for the very upper part that's just a paved road. But the bottom part of the trail is lovely. As for being wheelchair/stroller friendly, I wouldn't consider this trail to be suitable for either one. There is a short, paved panoramic loop behind the lighthouse that is accessible, but personally I wouldn't bring my stroller on this trail. I did bring my 2-year old twins with me but preferred to carry them both for short stretches rather than push 2 kids in a stroller uphill for a mile. And one more thing to consider: be prepared for no shade. I went on a cloudy morning, and it was perfect!

its, nice place

Great Trail for beginners!!

Very short but beautiful hike. No shade at all so on sunny hot days bring your shade with you. It’s an out and back that is all down hill out and uphill back. Then you have to add the road that you hike down that you then get to hike back up to the lighthouse. It’s all good in the end. The views are spectacular and worth the workout. Benches are placed along the trail so you can take a rest if you need to. Bring water!

Pretty sweet lil trail super easy , easy to navigate , descent lil scenery nice lil water way in the middle

Nice walking trail with beautiful water views. It's all uphill on the way back. I found stopping to read the information signs helpful for rest breaks as needed. Note, it does cost $15 to access the park via car but the pass is good for 1 week.

Definitely bring some sandals, or a towel. The waterfall and creek is very inviting after hiking an hour or two. Flat and lots of nature.

So this hike is beautiful but... the tick infestation sign at the trail head is no joke! My dog brought home 9 ticks. If you hike this trail I highly recommend staying directly on the trail and don’t let your furry friend run around in the brush at all! I love the hike but I won’t be back to this one because the ticks are terrible to deal with.

Great views of San Diego!! Don’t think is wheel chair friendly at all! I was pushing my son (about 40 pounds) in a jogger stroller and it was a little bit challenging uphill. It was a great workout after all.

Great ride for beginners... was my first mountain biking trail and I loved it.. gonna do this a few more times to build more confidence... went on a weekday, very few people on the trail.

Good hike that leads to a small waterfall, but a little crowded. Still worth the experience.

Lovely trail, well maintained. We did the loop today in 2hrs 22min.

Not a very interesting trail and crowded. Very hot. The creek was cool.

Downhill first mile, uphill on the wayback. jogger friendly.

Went with my 4 yr old and 8 month old and they did fine. Saw a large coyote after a family of deer which was neat. Waterfall was ok nothing spectacular but nice to look at. We came in on the West side of the trail so no parking fee.

If you drive in to the actual preserve it costs $3 to park. There was still quite a bit of water at the falls, it was a pretty hike!

Love Point Loma. This is a nice little trail with great views of Coronado, San Diego and Tijuana in the distance. There's some WWII history things to see related to gigantic spot lights and a generator building. Nothing too dramatic on the road grade - most people can handle it though wouldn't recommend wheel chairs. Lots of native California vegetation with some identification signage. Pick a little of the Coastal Sage and smush it with your fingers - the smell is wonderful.

A nice long trail so if you like long walks & nature go check it out. Bring plenty of water food/snacks. At the end of trail is a water fall nice site to see.

Easy walk! Stunning views, cool breeze! Make sure you bring your water bottle. Enjoy!

It's been several years since I visited this trail and now I remember why. The trail was full of runners and packs of cyclists so most of our morning was spent trying to get out of their way as they came passed. We started before 8:00am and there were already a lot of people on the trail. If you are looking for peace and quiet, I do not recommend this hike.
