    Gorgeous hike along the coastline where you can mix it up with cliffs and beach side walks. Gets crowded on weekends and parking is a $15 nightmare. We usually park on the street and walk in.

    Check out flat rock! Its a rock to your left if you come down from the cliffs that has a bunch of sea creatures on the rock. Great sand, Great sunsets.

    Best place to run in SD! Run along the beach or the cliffs. Bathrooms near by as well as a water fountain.

    Great spot for some activities: hiking, surfing, biking or sightseeing... Definitely worth a couple hours of your day. Free parking along the coast if you can find it!

    Everyone gets sand in their shorts. It’s how you deal with sand in your shorts that makes you stand out.

    I love you, San Diego! You'll always have a piece of my heart~ p.s. Avoid the beach trail during high tide, unless you want to get soaked.. Oopsie

    My favorite place to run after work. Along steep cliffs with breathtaking views, you'll want to come hiking here.

    Plan to pay for parking when you come here on the weekend, that way if you score free parking its a bonus!

    Park on Carmel Valley Road.. It's a bit of a walk but it'll save you the parking fee :) Great place to walk.. Watch the tides sometimes the beach disappears..

    Jog towards Del Mar, and you'll see a tunnel- it's a shortcut towards Del Mar. Awesome jog, hike adventure. Awesome views too!
