Trail head was difficult to ID at first, but after asking around, we parked at Paseo Del Mar & Avenida Mirola. The view is amazing. Very rocky path.

Beautiful hike. Difficult but worth it! Start early park closes gates strictly 5pm

Perfect to test our skills

Amazing views.

Not very challenging, but do not underestimate the stairs. My buddy was dying on the way back.

Kind of hard to find the entrance. A lot of interesting graffiti everywhere. Very green right now.

Easy walking but so many spectacular views. Access to tide pools too.

I'm giving it four stars for the hill factor. If you begin the trail off the 133 trailhead BOOM...the hill hits you right away. If I lived closer I would definitely be doing this trail all the time just for exercise.

It's short and sweet, but again, good butt burner.

TIP: the trail has no shade to speak of so make sure you pack a hat and plenty of water on hot days; parking is across the street (fee required); stop in at Laguna Beach Beer Company right now the street (walking distance from the parking lot) after!!

Great 2ish hour hike! Incline is a bit steep otw up but the views are definitely pretty! No shade so wear a hat!

We take our young kids here all the time. It’s a fun, easy hike with so many cool birds to identify. Beautiful, peaceful, and nice HB locals. No bikes allowed.

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

Great hike on the main trail into Sandstone Peak- gradual ascent, some minor scrambling, not too many rocks. Wonderful views across to Channel Islands from Sandstone, but a lot of scrambling and sharp rocks to get there- great for the experience, but not something to repeat often.

Amazing hiking. All the trail was very quiet so you could hear the sound of nature.

Good workout

Believe it or not the graffiti (an the unique graffiti house at the bottom of the trail) is the highlight of this trail. Make sure you do the loop clockwise. There is a gate (more like a break in the fence) to the left just at the beginning of the loop. Go through this gate a walk down lots of steep steps. Make a left at the bottom of the steps to continue along the trail. If you choose to do the loop in a counter clockwise fashion you may have trouble finding the steps to go back up (the entrance was not so clear and you have to climb up a ton of very steep stairs. I would definitely recommend doing the loop clockwise.

Fun - once you get past the first 3km, which is entirely up hill and at times, steep, it is a fun run with great views and a combination of steady flats along the ridge with fun down hill stretches and it all seems endless.

New to Southern California and couldn't seem to find a hike comparable to those in Oregon. However, this trail changed everything. I did the whole loop and took the detour out to Tri peaks (which i'd highly recommend). The trail is diverse and has the most amazing views almost the entire time. Loved every second of this trail and I'd HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking to get out on a good hike.

WARNING The entrance of the loop (not the starting of the whole route) is not obviously and can be easily missed!

I thought if I kept walking on the paved road I would eventually go into the loop and loop back, but that didn’t happen. Not until I walked 4 miles did I realized I was probably off the track because the while trail suppers to be 3.4 mile and I haven’t seen repeated scene.

When I walked back in darkness, I checked the map and saw two open parts on the fences under my flashlight, and there were staircases going down. I suppose that’s the loop... it’s really not obvious and clear, I’d suggest everyone to check their map if it’s their first time here, and maybe read the graffiti on road, though there were also misleading ones like “truck —>” and pointed to the cliff.

Other than that, it’s a easy, mostly-paved route, and the scenery is amazing!

It was a nice trail. I set out at 7:30 a.m and finished it in 2 hours. Carry water and sunscreen!

Nice tree cover and close to home. Wouldn’t have known about it without the AllTrails app!

Me and my boyfriend run here ever morning and we love it, it’s so peaceful and beautiful! Love love love!!!!

Great ride on Sunday afternoon when hikers are done.

Loved every step of this hike! Gorgeous views.

Short and sweet but it's a steep incline! I like that it also leads you to the Toovet Trail so you can make it a longer hike that is equally as rewarding.

Really well-maintained trail, nice variety in pathways, and beautiful views. Go AS EARLY as you can get there to enjoy some sense of solitude and beautiful light along the way.

For runners, a great place to practice decision-making for when to walk up steeps and when to run- and as a bonus, BOMBING downhill fun all the way.

This is definitely hard but we enjoyed the adventure. Backpacked our little one down the whole way and stayed low. Our 7yr old son was very into it. When it comes to walking on rocks the whole way we didn't really mind it and it was fun working our way to the end.

Definitely beautiful views, not alot of shade. Alot of different ways to venture off to. Probably would be a little more on the hard side versus moderate due to steep spots, stairs and cliffs.
