“A must-do short run for anyone looking for quick access to exceptional views of La Jolla and the Pacific Ocean.”— John Shuttlesworth
This trail typically goes unnoticed to the crowds of La Jolla Cove, as it is sandwiched between rocky cliffs and large homes, but offers some of the most spectacular views in Southern California. Well-placed benches offer inviting places to rest and take in the vistas. The dirt path ends at a very small parking area and then proceeds along a paved street to it's terminus.
Overall an exceptional way to spend a few minutes if you are ever in the La Jolla area.
