Nice trail. Was able to go off and find a private beach area to let the dog swim. Interesting overlooks from the tower.

Very well kept trail. Saw plenty of birds and one tortoise. Plenty of shaded stops to stop and drink water.
The only downside is it being so close to the drag strip. I came on a Saturday afternoon and the noise took away quite a bit of the "nature" atmosphere.

Easy, flat hike. Weekends are crowded - bikes ok.

Great trail for families. Very clear, designated paths. We took our 3 children and dog around the 5 mile loop and it took us about 2 hours. Very beautiful! We've been twice on the weekends and it hasn't been overly busy at all. Plenty of benches to rest and they even have a drinking fountain for the dogs at the Victorian house entrance. Will be going here regularly.

I went here today for the first time. I can't say enough about how beautiful this park was. Amazing views. Well marked trail. Impeccable condition. It was a great place to take a leisurely hike.

Wide variety of native plant species and birds! So excited to see all the restoration progress that's been made and is still underway. Unfortunately my first time hiking 7mi. loop was this June, and the heat was extenuated by the the lack of shade present in the long stretches of open-canopy trail. There really are plenty of shaded benches along the trail, but really make sure you've got enough water- especially if you're bring the pooch
