4.7/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web
Bike, admire views, or delve into history at Mount Soledad Presbyterian Church. The most famous of hill's residents was Dr. Seuss (aka children's book author Theodor Seuss Geisel), whose house is at the top. Switch gears, and pay your respects to war veterans at a Korean War memorial that resides nearby. Erected in 1913, the 8.8 m (29 ft) tall concrete cross has a controversial past and faces an uncertain future. However, the 251 m (822 ft) tall hill's many roads and light traffic primarily make it a popular cycling spot. You can opt for long and gradual climb or go for a short, steep uphill sprint. Note that cycling up the hill may be tricky on a windy day, and murky weather may obstruct the views. Put Mount Soledad Presbyterian Church at the forefront of your travel plans using our San Diego trip builder.
