Someone told us about this park. Otherwise, I never would have found it or journeyed to it. We were in San Diego for a conference. We traveled to the park. It is a bit scattered. You kind of have to drive from place-to-place. The staff there is very helpful. This is the perfect place to go if you like to be outdoors.

This state park is absolutely beautiful and well worth the $15 parking fee. Your parking is valid from 6am-sunset. You can go laying on the beach, swim, or hike on any of the trails. The trails over looking the ocean are amazing. Great place to be active and take a dip in the ocean. Check out my blog for a full review and more photos at http://msvaleriesmith.blogspot.com

This is the best place to walk on a trail or the beach. Don't bring your dog because they'll fine you big-time.

Wide, deep beach for strolls, sunning and sea. It can be a bit of a journey back UP to steps(hence the name...) but well worth it!

Bathrooms are always a bit musty/dirty, but there is an outdoor shower to rinse the salt off you skin....awesome beach for skim boarding, snorkeling, surfing and people watching.
