Nice easy trail and such gorgeous views!!

good clear trail .... down hill to edge.

Easy, no shade

Great trail system with killer views of the ocean and Catalina Island. Very easy, difficult parking, fairly busy.

A great Saturday morning walk. But don't expect solitude, there were lots of people on he trail even at 7am. Good for me and my dogs. We had fun!

I was very pleasantly surprised by this trail. I went on a Friday around midday and I only saw a few people in the 5 or so miles that I did.

First of all, the scenery is gorgeous on pretty much every part of it--you are right along the water for a lot of it. Definitely the prettiest hike I've done in PV. Most of it is unpaved except in the area right by the golf course. There isn't much shade, unfortunately, but the coastal breeze helps. Bring water!

Second of all, it really is a truly moderate trail. I followed the map almost exactly, and it has its fair share of hills--you'll be going up and down for about half of it but that makes it a nice workout. I didn't go all the way down to the water on every side trail but that would definitely make it more strenuous because of a steep uphill trek on the way back.

The golf course also has public restrooms and a free parking lot just for people using the trail (golfers aren't allowed).

Would definitely do this one again and recommend it to others!

This is a very nice walk as a morning starter. There are many path to take to intensify your workout.

Very nice hike, but glad I had this app with me - there are so many trails it would have been easy to get off track, but you wouldn't get lost! Definitely will return and take on the others!

Love this trail! So much fun and lots of things to explore! The cave area is so cool by the tide pools. Saw tiny crabs, fish, coral, anemones.

LOVEEEEE these trails. There's so many different directions to go, somewhat all connecting together. Great work out with Amazing views! Don't knock it because it's TRUMP trails.

Nice beautiful rainy day and the trail is excellent to hold hands and walk with my beautiful wife! Going to bring kids to enjoy this trail!!
