La Jolla Coast Walk Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"You get a stunning perspective of La Jolla Bay and the sparkling La Jolla Shores coastline on this short walk along the cliff-tops. You’ll be walking directly above the La Jolla Caves, on or near the very brink of a 100-foot drop to the bay’s calm surface. This fact should alert you to be watchful of small children, if you have any along."

"You get a stunning perspective of La Jolla Bay and the sparkling La Jolla Shores coastline on this short walk along the clifftops. You’ll be walking directly above the La Jolla Caves, on or near the very brink of a 100-foot drop to the bay’s calm surface. This fact should alert you to be watchful of small children, if you have any along. From the Prospect Street cul-de-sac parking spaces, find the public access stairs and path leading toward a trail paralleling the brink. To the right, the trail leads a short distance over a wood bridge to two obscure public parking spaces at the west end of a paved street signed as Coast Walk (an alternative place to park your car). We turn left and pass below the backyards of several palatial houses, all the while enjoying a spacious panorama of the blue ocean." Read more

Great trail with absolutely FANTASTIC views of San Diego! The trail was short but presented a good workout on the return trip uphill.
