beautiful views but hella steep. good leg work out

Great, well-maintained and marked loop trail. Beautiful, stunning views! Coyote Run Trail portion was closed, so we picked up Wood Canyon Trail, adding approximately another mile or so to the hike. Be cautious - Most mountain bikers seem to lack trail etiquette! All in all a perfect Sunday Funday, though!!

Nice trails, beautiful views.

The trail is nice, Maintained with a fantastic view.

First overnight trip with my eleven year old scout. Tiring but a lot of fun

I would not rate this as a hard trail. There is a butt burning cardio hill either direction you go in the beginning, but after that it's all easy peasy.

Had a great time. Amazing ocean views.

Pretty good trails with beautiful view. Love it.

Hiked this trail down to shoreline, over to the Beachcomber and back. 10.5 Miles. Beautiful views.

Great hike, good work out

Nice walk

Nice trails. Great views.

Great uphills.

Amazing views

I enjoyed this hike. We took west ridge from the park entrance and over to rocket. Easy to moderate. There are a couple of hilly areas so a good workout. It is mostly open with a tree partial area. A couple of trails are closed because of the recent fire. Had to hike another 1 mile. Definitely worth doing!

It was amazing view! We loved this trail and will come back for the ocean view for sure! We hiked 6.2 miles for 2 hours!! Early morning is recommended as there is not much shade or canopy.

Great workout, watch out for flies on the uphill climb. Views are pretty sweet.

Love this trail- great hills for the hikers and plenty of running trails for the runners.

Great work out with some challenging inclines. Watch out for mountain bikers on the narrow fence line trail portion of the hike. Bring a hat and plenty of water.

I love this hike for the following reasons:
1. It close to home - anywhere in south LA County or Orange County.
2. It is near the beach, so great views and bonus of spending part of the day on the beach after the hike.
3. Trails offer a variety so you can get the work-out you desire: short, long or difficult.
4. Choice of 4 campsites if you want to stay overnight.

Actually a moderate hiking but look out for the bikers !!!

Beautiful Mother’s day hike

I saw a coyote pup and a rabbit while hiking on the trail. Beautiful views with well maintained dirt roads. Up and down steep hills all along the way. Bring plenty of water - a great trail for running!

Great hike, not too difficult. Only one uphill stretch otherwise very straightforward.

no shade. nice view of the ocean.

Lots of mountain bikers, pretty views of the canyon and the ocean. Not a bad little trail.

Great hiking trail with multiple hills and great views of the Pacific Ocean. This is our go-to hike near our home in OC.

Lots of uphill! It's definitely a good work out but not too strenuous. Just be prepared to go UP. Amazing break spot at the flag at the top/half way through the hike. There is a gorgeous view with a picnic table and a little note book you can write some thoughts in or you can read other people's thoughts which is pretty entertaining. Scenery wise the best part is at the look out, up til then it's not spectacular. But it's worth the walk!

Great moderate hike, some of the inclines are a bit challenging but totally worth the views at the top. We took this counter clockwise and would definitely recommend doing the same so that you are rewarded with the breathtaking views at the end! Loved this hike and will be back for more in Crystal Cove!

Nice trail, has only one strenuous-ish ascend, the rest is pretty much easy/moderate. Saw a pack of coyotes who were scared off once we approached, lots of bunnies and birds. There were beautiful mountain views at the top and right before the descend (we went clock wise). Parking is $15 for the whole day but there’s a sunset rate from 5pm till sunset which is only $5. Saw a tow truck on the way back right before sunset, I guess they do enforce their parking policy. Definitely recommend and will come back.
