The Cold Spring trailhead on East Mountain Dr. is closed. Not sure how people are hiking this, unless they accessed the trail from another point?

It is a great hike to do with your family! There are so many great picture places, and the scenery is gorgeous. Be carful of snakes.

Absolutely love this trail. I’ve done it 4 times, and it never disappoints. Always gorgeous

fun trail to do. Parking is very tiny only like 4 spots and one handicap spot. The hike is very nice. You can see the ocean and fields. The incline is a little hard but I did it just fine it's probably about 200 yards or less. I would recommend it to active adults and kids 5+. will do again

Short moderate hike only about 2 1/2 miles but the ocean views were amazing! It’s a loop trail with a nice seafood restaurant at the start/end of the hike

One of my favorite hikes in Santa Barbara. Great views all throughout.
Moderate hike

Great hike today. Wide trails

Pretty cool hike. Can be cold at the top but the view is very nice

This is a long, relatively easy in / harder out hike all on a paved road. It is an, exposed trail with breathtaking panoramic views, but no protection from sun, so take plenty of water, snacks and pick a time to go when weather is cool; most likely early mornings or from Oct thru April. My lab loves these kind of leisurely long hikes and I always make her carry her own pack filled just with water! If you feel you've worked up a big enough appetite, the original famous Hitching Post Steak House in Casmalia isn't very far away!

Overall, an easy hike through the sequoias to the stair climb. Beautiful views of the valley all through out the trail and tons of wild life. The stair climb can be difficult but their are plenty of places to stop and break and enjoy the views before reaching the insane panoramic views at the top. Get their early before it gets busy to truly appreciate it :)

this trail needs some love. very loose surface. 500ft from the top there are 2 slides that are 10-15ft across and extremely dangerous to pass. we turned back. not safe.

Amazing view.

BEAUTIFUL MALIBU hike that has scenic, ocean coastal views. The patches of yellow dandelion mazes while heading up the trail was gorgeous too. I came here with a buddy of mine on Saturday afternoon around 4pm and it wasn't crowded at all. The trek is 2.5 long so very doable and after your workout I highly recommend eating at the Malibu Seafood shack at the bottom.

Parking: There is plenty of parking on the side of the PCH or there is also a small paid lot at the head of the trail that is around $5.

Kickass hike, tar pits, just an all around amazing trail with great scenery and awesome for picture taking

allegaste a otro planeta..

Moderate intensity but views are totally worthy! We started at 10:00 am and was a little hot. I recommend to start earlier, because the round trip takes about 4 hours if you stop to take pictures and the sun is really strong while going back. Otherwise, amazing!!!

Was excited to do this hike and it was definitely different considering the scenery and that you are right along the stream. But that being said, we didn’t make it to the punch bowl. The arrows were less clear at the end and we were with our pup and the rocks were getting bigger and it had become more dangerous than was comfortable for us. It sounds like there are multiple ways to get to the end - we tried to stick to the red line on the All Trails app Esther than the dotted line. Thinking the dotted line could have actually gotten you there and been easier than the red line, which was right along the creek. The dotted line seemed to be out in the hot sun, which some people were referencing in their reviews. We likely won’t do it again but if we did, we would go the dotted trail route. Would be cool if someone else could confirm that for others using the app!

Good hike, my 13 year old dog was able to reach the tippy top with me. We went clockwise and were bombarded with high noon sun... hike would have been a little easier if it weren’t for the heat (still not too bad, late October). The hike down was mostly shade.

Amazing 360 view!

This trail was easy not much of an incline. Dog friendly for sure. beautiful views.

I really enjoyed this hike, the ascent is gradual, the trail is wide enough, and the vistas are amazing.

Beautiful views! Well worth the climb!

Love this trail. Hiking poles helped greatly with the ascent and descent.

Best views are at the very beginning then it’s not very exciting after that.

Challenging hike through lovely terrain. Offers nearly 360 degree view of San Luis Obispo at its highest point.

Definitely challenging specially after you’ve done several other hikes and get lost (it happens to me a lot) but it was s good challenge and I totally teared up when I saw my vehicle LOL

Took this trail from Rocky Peak Trail ... nice and awesome scenery easier than Rocky but it was cause I was going down

Great hike! Not sure why this is rated moderate. It's definitely easy. It's flat the whole way. The trail gets a little messy sometimes and you have to go over rocks and cross the river but nothing crazy. This was absolutely lovely.
