Visiting Mt. Helix Park

Mt. Helix Park is open 365 days a year to the public. From Point Loma to Lakeside, the Park offers an amazing 360º view of San Diego. Come explore everything that we have to offer from the diverse ecosystem to the historic amphitheater. Mt. Helix Park welcomes everyone!



The Park offers a short and easy hiking trail located to the right of the amphitheater. Take an easy stroll along the Yawkey Trail and see all of the native plant life to the Park. 


With a 360º view of San Diego, this is truly a photographers paradise. The park offers a wide variety of photography angles from the sprawling native plants, breathing views and diverse animal ecosystem. Come by for a one of a kind sunrise and sunset. Email any photos to to be featured on our Facebook and Instagram. 


Walk to the Top

In addition to an upper parking lot next to the amphitheater, the Park owns two parking lots at the intersection of Mt. Helix Dr. and Vivera Dr. next to the San Miguel Fire Station. These areas are open to Park visitors during Park hours of operation and are a great place to start your walk to the top.     


With a large amphitheater many people take advantage of the sprawling stairs for their fitness routines. If you are interested in an organized class come to Helix Yoga or Zumba! See our calendar for more details.
