We loved the view from this trial. 20 minutes of walking, 20 minutes of gazing at the panoramic view

Two Entrances to trail at each end. Great Views
Feb 2021
Walked the complete trail from one side to the other. Hide Thrower statue is on one side. Steps up and down may not be easy for some, but worth the effort to see. The Thrower statue is near one entrance and down a few steps to be viewed. A great view of the Dana Point Harbor from here.

Not many people seeing this during the week and easy parking. Interesting part of the local history and worth of your efforts

Very nice and short walk with views.

I had seen this option here on TripAdvisor and looked so cute so I added to my To Do list. Thought it was longer, but it is quite enjoyable and short. Walk through cute neighborhood on both ends. You can view the harbor at different angles and take nice pics. While on vacation, you can walk from harbor to Doris Walker Overlook, from there walk a few blocks to start the Bluff Top Trail. Get some fresh air, nice views, and exercise. :)

The San Clemente Beach Trail.

Have always loved walking the beach trail. It is clean and so very picturesque. I’m a walker, but a lot of runners use the Trail.

Vantage view of Dana Point harbor
Jul 2020
Another good place to walk about to enjoy nature and fresh air during this pandemic. The panoramic view of the harbor is just stunning. We actually visited the Bluff hiking trail and had a good time walking around. It was not really a hike but more of a cliff walk for the enjoyment of the public. Although short, the view was breathtaking. We saw a lot of people taking graduation photos there. With the harbor background, it’s a perfect spot for graduation pictures.

We took quite a bit of pictures ourselves. The best spot for picture taking is right in front of the three half circle wall with the harbor as the backdrop.

The trick to get there is to use this address : 34342 street of the Amber Lantern, Dana point and then park on the street. The entrance is a tiny gate on the side.

Scenic walkway
Jun 2020 • Solo
A very short leisure walkway ... well worth it. Amazing spectacular views. Hubby wasn’t feeling well so I ventured out on my own. There are a couple of benches to sit down and take it all in and several steps you will have to take along the path. Nothing strenuous.

Great Views & Nice Easy Walk
Feb 2020
We were so excited to walk the Bluff Top Trail and we were not disappointed. It is so beautiful and a photographers dream as you can see all of the harbor and beyond. There are some steps but it is an easy walk. I would recommend it if you are in Dana Point.

Fabulous Ocean Views!
Jun 2019 • Couples
This is a great place to walk and enjoy the beautiful ocean views, especially at sunset. The trail is moderate with some short climbs but suitable for youngsters of all ages.

Beautiful Ocean Vistas
Apr 2019 • Friends
The Bluff Top Trail in Dana Point is a great place to take out of town visitors for a short walk, but they have to be able to walk stairs. Starting at either the end of Amber Lantern street or Violet Lantern Street, you walk down stairs to a boardwalk type bridge and then up again at the other end. The view of the harbor and Pacific Ocean is stunning. The flowers are blooming at this time of year (April) and add to the view. The walk includes a couple of historical markers that give you a flavor of the early days at Dana Point.
