A great place to go and renew your spirit and sense of self. Parking is a little tricky. Sunset and sunrise are your best bets here for taking advantage of the view. Either way, it is a great place that instills peace with the views....More

Has a nice view, but we had hoped to take a walk, and it's not really the place for that unless it's a short walk.

Mt Helix has been around 'forever' and meandering through the area is so peaceful and the views in any direction are magnificent. But they close early so check the times before you head out at sunset.

There are spectacular 360° views of San Diego, all the way to the ocean on clear days. We like to bring out of town visitors up here to get a glimpse of almost the entire city.

I know that you can always walk to the top of Mt. Helix Park, but sometimes the gates are up for cars at certain levels. It is a beautiful view for sunrise or sunset.
