nice hike it was very hot and dry not private or secluded highly trafficked
dipped in the ocean at the bottom to cool down
we took it down on the north side of the loop back on the south but should have done the reverse the view is a lot nicer going down on the south part of the loop
also be aware if you take side track that they my end on private property with do not enter signs
we had to back track a few times...

We started at the end of Crenshaw and hiked down to Inspiration Point. The Portuguese bend and Sacred Cove are spectacular. Gorgeous ocean views all the way down. On the way up, we took the Pacific Rim trail for a bit of a challenge. Good traction shoes a must if you're on the Pacific Rim trail. Hiking poles help too. Bring lots of water. Very little shade on the trails. We started at 7:30am and finished in 3 hours. It's a fun park to do a half day hike with ocean views!

Taking the left trail is slightly more of a climb. Beautiful ocean and canyon views.
