We picked this hike as our annual New Years hike. Every other hike we've checked out from All Trails has been amazing. Unfortunately this one did not fall in that category. First of all is should be rated at EASY not MODERATE. If you want to stroll along the coastline, this is perfect. If you're looking for more, get your heart rate going, look further. Don't get me wrong. The views are amazing even on a cloudy day. We could still see Catalina Island and even spotted some whales far off shore. We didn't go as far as the trail said because we ended up in what looked like a gated community. We turned back and took the trail to the beach. I'd say climbing back up that hill was Moderate but once you hit the top again you are back to a resting heart rate. Good thing is no bike riders. Lots of dogs but that was our daughters highlight. So all in all, well maintained walking path for a lovely stroll to the lighthouse and beautiful views.
Nice views of the lighthouse
Perfect for beginners. Dog friendly.
