Hello everyone! This is a friendly reminder that any of these fun places we may visit, we are a guest at. Please treat both businesses and trails with the utmost respect. We here at Hidden San Diego follow the 'Leave no Trace' mantra, meaning whatever you bring with you comes back with you. If you see trash on a trail, please do your part to help remove it. Remember, we are not picking up trash from another person but instead cleaning up for Mother Nature. Happy adventures!

We are no longer offering directions to this spot due to the eroding of the trail from too much foot traffic.

 

CHECK OUT OUR GUIDE ON ALL THE HIDDEN GEMS IN LA JOLLA FOR AN AMAZING DAY TRIP!

Personal Experience: This trail kind of goes hand in hand with Mushroom Beach, which is located in La Jolla, due to the strange nature-made formations that you will come across.

Be prepared for a mini adventure which is not necessarily safe. This trail is completely made of sandstone after all, which can crumble at any moment. It is never safe to explore this trail after a rainfall as the sandstone becomes far weaker and is more likely to come apart. People have been greatly injured here due to hiking after a storm. With that said, you can look forward to crawling down sand steps, walking across a plank and a climbing down rope to get to the beach. Are you ready?

There are pretty cool slot canyons here, offering an alternate route to the shore:

    As a Vietnamese communist refugee from Vietnam. Communist is not anything I glorified. Ho Chi Minh was not our leader but a terror to my people. I would request to change the name to something else. Thank you.

    Peter, go hide in your safe space. This wasn’t named for offensive reasons. As a caucasian, I would like to request that the name of crackers be changed to “wafers”, as I find it offensive to my people. Thank you.

    The inclusion of this trail on this website is leading to its destruction. The foot traffic has increased ten fold in the past 6 months. La Jolla surfers have been using this trail unhindered for years and now it is jam packed with families and other hikers. Some spots are meant to stay hidden. Someone is going to get hurt, the easement is going to be closed and those of us who have been using it daily since we were kids are going to be SOL

    Why on EARTH is this trail named after a communist leader? That is nothing to be proud of. I don’t understand how Vietnamese Americans in California haven’t caught wind of this and asked for a change of name.

    Ho Chi Minh is not a hero to Vietnamese The name reminded to Vietnamese refugees like Hitler / Nazi to Jews. Please change this awful name for the beautiful San Diego, land of the proud Marines and Navy Seals

    We are asking the leaders of San Diego to change the trail’s name. Ho Chi Minh is a murderer and he is everything against what America stands for. We will not forget the favor if you take the name down.

    ho chi minh is one of the top murderers in the world. I don’t understand why people, especially a famous university in California, glorify him.
