"It is advisable to look from the tide pool to the stars and then back to the tide pool again."
- John Steinbeck
Once you've seen all you can see at the tide pools, you can then drive to the top of the mountain where the monument sits overlooking the San Diego Bay. Steam ships, sailboats, and the Coronado coast stand in your line of vision for a spectacular view of the city and mountains in the near distance. You can then hike a 2 mile bayside trail from the top of the mountain down to the water and back up. There's tons of historical markers and a view of the lighthouse. Just make sure to watch out for rattlesnakes!
