The path is mostly paved so it’s more of a walk than a hike! But beautiful views and we went on a warm day so the beach was so comfortable

Gorgeous wooded single track trail run that I did with my dog. Beautiful views on the ridge lines. You can add various loops to make it a longer run if you prefer. Map and GPS worked perfectly.

Short, easy trail but THE VIEWS.. oh my god. So worth it getting here.

This was a good trail with a stroller. The kids (5 and 3 years old) had a lot of fun finding beautiful pebbles in a streamlet near the ocean. They are excited to go back!

Short trail, good for kids, our kids enjoyed picking fennel leaves and sour grass, and they loved gallivanting on the beach.

It was a perfect morning hike with my husband and two small children. Most dogs are not kept on leashes (fine by us!) but Incase that’s an issue for others.

Great trail, VERY limited parking so go early or on weekdays. Pretty flat until you hit a few steep switchbacks shortly before the falls. The falls were just trickling today but it’s gorgeous in the canyon with the redwoods, ferns, and moss so still worth it. I did the loop up past the falls to the left, it switchbacks up to a wide fire road which also had some great views of the tree covered hills and the bay. Finished my loop by coming down the Barbara Springs Trail which was very steep & would be tough if muddy.

Really pretty ravine, and may be an easy hike, but this loop involves some single track that isn’t “easy”... didn’t make it off the main fire road with the kids.

Beautiful trail through what felt like an ancient forest - old craggily trees covered in moss. Varied route with meadows, views and forest. Would recommend it. Good for kids too

Trail is easy! Beautiful views of the ocean!

Beautiful hike. Well marked & maintained. Views are exceptional. Easy, short hike.

It’s easy with kids, our son who is 4yo has been able to hike all the way and back. Parking can be a bit tricky, we had to park 5min away from the entrance.

Great hike when you want something short and simple but with stellar views. I wasn’t aware that I would get to see elephant seals so that was a nice surprise!

Easy to moderate hike with great views. Various steep hill paths that can make this more challenging.

Super easy. Good spot for picnic or big group of friends. Gorgeous little beach at the end. Parking is easy even on the weekend.

Beautiful scenery with many route options. We ended at 2.5 miles and not the 1.5 listed. We were able to hike down to the beach for easy waking with surrounding dogs.

Easy hike for kids and being dog friendly is a huge bonus.
Views are gorgeous. Parking is busy but didn’t have to wait long (came around 3 pm on gorgeous Saturday)
Easy access to additional trails

I wouldn't call this a trail. More like a climb on a cliff among slippery rocks. nice views but not at all a hike.

Nice short hike, not shaded at some parts

Found parking difficult, probably because of the beach. Nice trail though and only a few other pups which is good for our not so good pup. It’s also very narrow and exposed so bring sunscreen and water.

Awesome! Nice view!

Fun! User/Unmarked trails make it a harder hike.

Just did the loop a long timw ago...

A lot of bicycles so stick to the right.
A lot of dog owners, some leave their dogs with no leash so pick up your child when one comes.
Muddy after rains so bring decent shoes or boots but fine after a few hours as it slopes a lot.
The lake in the middle "water dog lake" is lame.

Pretty easy trail, middle of the city, 5 minutes from home so can't complain.
It goes either up or down so not a flat route.

Easy hike with nice views. Parking and beach access available at both ends. No restrooms.

We sis this hike as a family with a 4 and 7 year old. The trails were very well marked and had lots to see. Definitely recommend and will come back.
