You’ll also get to see the lighthouse at the beginning of the trail.
Directions: From I-5 or I-8, at the interchange where the two freeways meet, take the Rosecrans Blvd. exit. Proceed 3 miles southwest on Rosecrans to Canon Street on the right. Drive uphill on Canon Street, which merges with Catalina Boulevard after 1.2 miles. Keep going south on Catalina and you’ll eventually enter Cabrillo National Monument at the road’s end.
