Stand more than 800 feet high underneath the shade of a 43-foot cross, and enjoy gorgeous, 360-degree views from this prime memorial and picnic, photo and sunset spot.

Mount Soledad is a prominent landmark in the city of San Diego. The mountaintop is the site of the "Mount Soledad cross", the subject of a continuing controversy over the involvement of religion in government.

The 822-foot-tall hill lies between Interstate 5 to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. It is mostly within the community of La Jolla where the northern and eastern slopes form a sharp escarpment along the Rose Canyon fault. The community of Pacific Beach is on the gentler southern slope.

There are several radio and television transmitters located on the summit including television channels 8 and 10, the CBS and ABC affiliates respectively. Commercial aircraft approaching San Diego from the direction of Los Angeles often use Mt. Soledad as their point to start the downwind leg of their approach to San Diego International Airport.

Beauty in every direction
Below you: the shimmering waters of La Jolla Shores and terra cotta roofs of folks luckier than you or I. To the north: the coastline all the way up to Orange County. To the south: views of Mexico with the city skyline and everything else in between. And to the east: vistas as far as your eye can see.

Getting there:
Nautilus St
La Jolla, CA 92037
