Don’t be afraid to go towards the houses. You’ll take a pretty steep hike up to the swings that overlook SLO. Beautiful views. Fun hike.

Perfect level of difficulty. Tons of steps. Devils gulch was a lot of scary fun for the kids.

Was very beautiful, I’m so glad I went. Very flat ground but very far to walk !

great walk

Does anyone know if there are any accessible trails for a Wheelchair?

A short and sweet hike that meets all the criteria when you're looking for something simple.

It is not too strenuous but has a few fun parts that'll get your heart rate up. The view isn't breathtaking, but very refreshing. It's not too crowded, nor is it desolate.

Great place for a short afternoon hiking that doesn't need too much preparation.

Beautiful views. Great hike.

Fun. I personally like the eagle's nest trail.

As a Kentuckian, Natural Bridge is obviously a hallmark too us! Love natural bridge!

I took Rock Garden to the north and then looked back around to connect up with the natural bridge, finishing by taking the Balanced Rock trail to the south. Surprisingly very little foot traffic on Rock Garden, take Balanced Rock down from the Natural Bridge if you want to avoid going up the stairs.

Such a beautiful trail!! I hiked it alone on a moderately busy Sunday afternoon. It was the perfect combination of ease and difficulty for me. Very straightforward to follow along the path, and when you come to a fork in the trail it is marked properly. There are a few decent sized rocks along the way to stop and hang out to take a short break.

Wonderful hike!
Early October, Sunday morning, got there at around 7:30 and the parking was halfway full. Very windy, lots of shades, waterfalls was only dripping water. Descending first then ascend when going back to the parking.
Paid the fee for $10 (fee is only $8, but didn’t have change, self pay in the envelope)
Definitely come back for camping overnight!

NOT an OFFROAD drivng trail, Hiking ONLY!

Beautiful trail. View of the Santa Cruz mountains and it’s a loop too back to the parking lot. Not too much elevation change. Make it by 9am to have a good shot at parking.

Amazing views of the GG Bridge. I recommend doing that hike only when it’s not foggy on that side of town.

Did part of this with another trail. Very nice views of the Santa Cruz Mnt foothills

Great trail. It's well maintained, has some beautiful views, and (early in the morning) wasn't too crowded. The parking lot at the trailhead is pretty limited, but there's some extra along the road.

Awesome hike with beautiful views! Definitely go in the morning to avoid getting hit too much with the sun.

It was a great walk with the dog. Up and back nice open trail-

Nice decent hike with amazing views. I took a detour down to Marshall’s Beach and walked it before coming back to the main trail. Not a lot of people which made it easy and quiet!

One of the absolutely most beautiful views I've gotten in the Bay Area. Going around 7-10 am you get to see a snake of fog slithering through the valley

Beautiful hike with rewarding vistas! Fun to explore the boulders at the summit.

Great views. Tough at the top with the optional rock climbing, but worth it.

Met a rattle snake that makes this trial special
