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.

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!

Didn't know we have this beautiful trail so close to the border. It's nice for all levels, no mountains, nature

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!

If you start from dairy mart rd and finish at friendship park. Your round trip will be around 10 miles.It s a flat surface and easy .Seldom used so there's alot of wildlife. Saw a black throated magpie jay gorgeous bird. On the actual trail a coyote was chasing a jack rabbit. Theres alot of roadrunners too.

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.

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.

Hardly anyone around and the beach all to yourself. Watch for horseback.

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.

Someone forgot to mention that this trail is ON the military base, therefore requiring a military permit to enter. Came to run and quickly realized we would have to look elsewhere.

This is.a great trail with great views of San Diego Bay that’s about 2 miles round trip. It is almost completely downhill for the first mile and of course you must come back up for the second mile. I notice that it says wheelchair friendly....I don’t think so. The first quarter of a mile is paved. The rest is dirt and rocks.

This is a nice, easy trail for a walk. Its fun to head down and explore the tidepools after. Don't bring your dog.

Amazing reviews. Not much of an incline when compared to other trails. But still a good workout and the views are breathtaking. Will def do again. Parking fee was $15 which is worth it.

Good maintained trail. easy trail for beginners like me.

High traffic and short, but good views! It was worth a one-time visit.
