We accessed this trail from the Torrey Pines State Reserve. The trail is well-marked and not too difficult. There is mostly low shrub-type plants along the trail with little shade. Bring plenty of water and wear good hiking shoes. The ocean views are amazing and...More

We hiked on the Razor Point portion of the trail. The trail is in good condition and leads to beautiful scenic views of the ocean. There is no real shade along the trail, and the sun can be quite intense, so I'd suggest bringing plenty...More

This is a hike that's easy enough that everyone can enjoy it. The views of the ocean are great, and if you keep your eyes open you might see some wildlife.

Great hike with spectacular views. If you hike at all, you would find this an easy to moderate hike. The trails are well marked and the trail was well maintained. Bring water with you as it got hot in the sun.
