Although this park is located within San Diego's city limits, it remains one of the wildest landscapes along the Southern California coast, with miles of unspoiled beaches, chaparral, elegant Torrey Pine trees and a lagoon vital to many species of migrating birds.

Good for walking. Nice views. Easy to get too. Wear good shoes and have good balance. Small price for admission. Worth it to keep the place up.

Georgeous scenery does not describe what you'll see. I've come to visit this location the last three times I was in SD. Either walk or drive to the top; pretty steep climb. Great walking paths if you're wearing closed toe shoes.

San Diego's finest. Not only is the drive into this beach breathtaking but the views are astronomical! Getting there isn't the easiest so I tends to be the least crowded as well so tit for tat on that one lol. I honestly can't give this...More

Great place to hike and view the ocean. Some of the paths even lead down to the ocean beach. Make sure you wear your sneakers and sunscreen.

A must do while in town. If you are into hiking plan to spend a good part of the day at this park. Plenty of trails and stops along the way to enjoy the views.

We are visiting San Diego and wanted to exercise early morning, this is sooo beautiful. We started at 7:00am and walked for 1 hour along the beach and trail. Soooo beautiful, lots of surfers, just very worth it to go if you like nature.

You can hike along the beach in the cliffs. Many trails from easy to difficult. The Torrey Pine trees are indigenous to this area hence the name. I’d recommend bringing a walking stick. There are parts of the paths with no railings for safety. The...More

A must see if you like walking and looking at the ocean. Tends to get crowded, especially on the weekend. No vendors so take your own water, especially if you walk up the hill from the beach parking. Well worth the price of parking

If you will have a car, you might consider going to the beach on Coronado Island. You can find parking on the street some days. The beach is right near the beautiful old Coronado Hotel. Nice to walk through the little... More
