Super fun! Very easy to modify difficulty and length based on the trails you take.
Only gave this hike a 3 because of length. Its a good running trail. Very popular on weekends and afternoons. There are "off" trails to make the hike longer but it can easily be done in under an hour.
Love the options it gives you
I love this park. There are a few options for loop trails. For more difficulty, stay to the left. There options for climbing further back in the hills as well. It offers great ocean and hillside views and can be made longer or shorter depending on the time you have and path you take. I wear my daughter in a baby carrier and we do this hike 2-3 times a week. Nothing technical, just a fun time. Great for trail running too. We are lucky to have it so close.
Took my 6 year old grandchild on this trail today, we got a decent leg work out. Sad to see how brown everything is along the trail. I've just moved here from Utah and am realizing the extent of the drought here. Still a lovely state to live in. Look forward to exploring more trails in this area.
Trail was a nice blend of up and down. Went a second day for a short hike and - Rattlesnake on the trail and he was huge! Snake didn't fit in well with this family oriented park. I won't go back.
Made me sore- which is good! Bring your dogs with you too!!
I am a beginner, it was work. But will do it again. Can't give up! This will Get me in shape!
At first it seemed like a simple trail. As I continued, I discovered that there were spots where it was steep climbing and your stamina was definitely tested. Overall, I enjoyed the hike and would do it again.
