Awesome trail for beginners and intermediate. We started the trail on the left ridge as recommended by another reviewer for the beautiful bay view as you ascend. The trail down is steep and rockie in certain places. We got on the trail at 7:30am and was done in two hours.

No waterfall due to drought! Great views. Would consider it difficult on the way up.

Really nice trail. if you dont want to pay The parking fee, make sure to park on Sunset Blvd. It's 2 hours parking. Came across a deer on this hike which had the kids excited. A bit tough but a nice workout overall. I came on a Saturday and it started to get a bit more crowded around 10am on my way down. Just a heads up.

If you go off the trail which I do a lot it can be very steep with nothing to grip your shoes on. I fell a few twice. Lesson where hiking boots with traction not regular running shoes.

This trail was awesome!!! It has great views of the mountains and of the ocean!! However, beware!! If you don't hike regularly it can be quite difficult! It starts off very steep but once you reach the top it's downhill from there!! Yet it's doable if you take your time and stop to rest along the way!
