This trail was awesome for trail running. Great views of the ocean while going along the side of the hill. I joined up with another trail that did a loop and intersected gray whale trail again. Running, the whole thing took 30 minutes I could've gone longer as there were more trails available to go higher up. Perfect for a morning warm-up.

The sights on this trail are amazing. Some of the trails might get somewhat difficult for the average Joe, but it is nothing that can't be overcome. Its makes a great day with family and friends.

Good hike. The first mile is basically a downhill mountain bike track, jumps, burms and all, so keep your head up and be ready to move. I went on a saturday and there were about a dozen bikers. Other than that, typical bay area hike, good views, some fog, wildflowers, trees.

Beautiful day! Start with a gradual climb along some switch backs. Spring is still here as we saw thistles, daisies, hydrangeas, blackberries, red paintbrush-like flowers and more. Fragrances all around with the eucalyptus, bay trees, rosemary and the ocean. We had a semi-clear sunny day. The view was of Pacifica, Highway 1, San Francisco... even Alcatraz! Bring a wind breaker and the hike to summit wasn't too shabby. You'll be walking on textured rocks. The park itself has well kept bathrooms and visitor center. Do remember your $6USD if you are parking at the San Pedro County Park.

Best hike within a 30 min drive of San Francisco in my opinion. Wildflowers were in abundance, and even though it looked like we'd have a foggy view when we set off we were treated to blue skies for nearly the entire hike. Bring sunscreen as there's few trees on the upper half.

This is a easy trail. There some nice views and most of the trail is shady.
