Good place to walk small dogs

nice scenery and landscaping. good walk to the Avila Beach

great beautiful views

Great hike, views are totally with the uphill. The first 1/3rd is along the creek and in the shade which was appreciated in the heat. The signage for the peak is not great but we followed the signs for E Camino Cielo and then just took a right to head up the back to the peak. The last part was a bit loose and steeper but it's not for long, and again the views are worth it.

Solid hike.

Nice to see water! Variety of trail to ride and try to but some hike a bike but still great little ride or longer if you ride from Ventura like I do it makes it a lot longer ride!

Beautiful in the spring when wildflowers are blooming and water is flowing! Great for backpacking and day hikes. Lots of river crossing, so be prepared to get your boots wet!

Nice Hike right in your backyard!

Not sure if I had a unique experience, but this trail is definitely sketch! It's not hiked very often so the trails is overgrown in a few places leading up to the school house. The trail leaving the schoolhouse east is really hard to see! My friend and I got lost and had to back track. Also, watch out for wild donkeys
