Mount Soledad is on La Jolla's southeast side. Within easy freeway access, homes on Mt. Soledad have some of the county's most breathtaking views. At an elevation of 800 feet, Mount Soledad is the highest point in San Diego County. "Soledad" translates to "solitude" in Spanish, and Mount Soledad remained undeveloped until the latter part of the 20th century, when Nautilus Street was constructed. Mt. Soledad’s history of recreational usage includes aviation pioneer Charles Lindberg and his wife, Anne Morrow Lindberg, who practiced glider plane flights here in the 1930’s. Post-development in 1954, a 43-foot Latin cross was constructed at the summit of Mount Soledad to honor veterans of WWI, WWII, and the Korean War. There is also a public park and parking lot at the summit.
