Overall a good trail. Lots to see, plenty of wildlife (saw coyotes, mule deer, and turkeys). Well marked and easy to follow.

Relatively easy with a few gently rolling hills until the end of the trail. Steeper climb up to the Lighthouse. Bring plenty of water, especially during the warmer months.

Pretty easy hike with lots of traffic if you are there on a weekend. Nothing too spectacular until you get to the end of the trail and have to do some real scrambling to get to the Lighthouse! Worth the long walk to see this and get to the top and have the view! Don't underestimate this trail though.....you'll need ample water.

Too steep & dangerous on the last portion for people not athletically inclined. Needs safer path for all to enjoy.

Start early and bring lots of water! Also be sure to make the final hike up to the base of the lighthouse if you can.
