It was just me and my dog on the trail.

Small little hike with beautiful ocean views. Happy we could bring our dog on the trail, but unfortunately couldn’t take him on the beach.

Short and crowded. A nice walk if you happened upon it accidentally; not worth going out of your way for.

Awesome sunset very easy to park along the highway and walk down to the water

A recent storm washed out several trails. I spoke with a lifeguard and right now the only option is to walk over the rocky beach - difficult but fun (I had my dog). Parking is $6 for each 2 hrs, free for seniors 62 and older and ADA.

Nice little hike. Incredible ocean views.

One of my local favorites at sunset.

It’s really short, but beautiful and great to do with kids.

It’s beautiful but very easy. I wish it was longer.

What a beautiful trail along the rocky coastline, well traveled trails, wide in some spots. Lovely natural landscapes too.

We got to the parking with no problem at all. To the left side of the nature center, walk parallel towards the street and shortly after you will see the trailhead. The trail was mostly flat but at the end there was a steady incline. I don't know what people were saying about bringing toddlers on this hike. Those are some active toddlers! My boyfriend has bad knees and he said this was the perfect length. **Watch out for horse poo**!

Not a bad hike especially that I had the trail all to myself. I didn't realize horses took the trail because there was A LOT of horse poop to hop over. The trail would probably be prettier in the Springtime because it was very dry and overgrown when I went plus the stream was all dried up. There's a bit of an incline towards the end. All in all, it's a nice quick quiet trail to getaway and get the heart pumping.

Nice easy short out and back trail. Not strenuous at all. But a nice little morning nature walk. We took the dogs and they loved it!

Great hike, but you may have to swim a small section to get to the tide pools. We will def come back with swim suits so we can get across to the tide pools next time.

It is a pretty hike and gives you a nice incline to get the heart pumping.

Very nice trail with lots of shade. Went on a Sunday and there's a nice lot for parking. Had our two little ones, 23 month old and 8yr old. They loved it! Only one small thing was there was alot of horse poop but maybe it's not there all the time...definitely worth it.

A nice and easy trail to a beautiful beach

It was the perfect hike that was not too challenging, but enough to work up a sweat!

Good challenge hike. Nice views with cool ocean breezes.

Nice short walk, great for kids.

One of the most beautiful and remote walks/hikes near the water I’ve done!

A really wonderful park for getting away from city life. Well maintained trail with signs along the way with information about birds, animals, plants and history of the park.

Be prepared for snakes. We came across a rattle snake on the trail. Aside from that scare, we really enjoyed the hike. We saw a cottontail rabbit and plenty of birds.

It’s a moderately easy path with an uphill at the end of the trail.

Beautiful views and some decent climbs. I Highly recommend it :)

Very easy walk, only a slight incline. It was perfect for my lazy dog, but not too challenging for me. This trail would be great for small kids and anyone just starting out with a fitness regimen. Parking and access to the trail were both easy to find.

Great place gorgeous views
