About
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.

Great for hikes or long walks on the beach! One of my favorite places in San Diego. Busy on weekends

A breath of fresh air
May 2021
When your San Diego visit seems too noisy, drive up here to get away from it all and get aerobic exercise. On a week day we found easy parking at the top.

It's Worth Paying for the Views
May 2021
Pay the $15 to drive up to the hiking areas. Most of the hikes seemed to just be short walks to some beautiful views. Some people had parked along the road to walk in, but it's worth the $15 just for the views. We were only in the park for a few hours (2-3).

We stopped by here as we were sight seeing and the beach is very beautiful and calming to walk down. There are alot of rocks along the shoreline.

WOW what a magnificent hike!!! So many different trail off shoots with varying views. Just gorgeous!!! The Fleming trail was STUNNING. We hiked all the way down to the ocean and all the way up to top. Would love to hike every day!!!

Beautiful break from shopping
Apr 2021 • Family
This area was so beautiful and a break from restaurants and shopping. There were so many trails to keep distancing from others. Could have done more but it was getting warm and we forgot water. A last minute decision, excellent choice.

Beautiful trails and views of the local landscape and ocean
Mar 2021
We really love these trails with views of the ocean. It may be a steep hill for some that start the climb to the top, but the trail is mainly paved to make it easier for those with less mobility. You can also park on the North end of the beach to make it a longer round trip walk.

Great reserve with trails with beautiful scenery, there are a lot of hills that may feel rigorous to some so definitely bring water
