Black Canyon

La Jolla, California

Black Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"Black Canyon, at the north end of La Jolla, is one of the few undeveloped oceanfront canyons in San Diego County. The trail is a steep, vehicle-restricted road owned by the University of California that is a popular route for surfers, bikers, joggers, sunbathers, and hikers. From the multi-million dollar homes atop the mesa, the road winds a half mile down the 350-foot sandstone cliffs through the deep canyon to an unspoiled white-sand beach."
