Beautiful scenery through out the trail and ending with a beach walk back to the starting spot is a great cool down.

Great little out and back trail! Not completely flat, but not overly challenging, either. Terrain is very dry, but that's no surprise right now. Creek was flowing a little bit, nice to be able to walk along some water. Lots of available, free parking at the trailhead. Directions from All Trails are perfect. No restrooms or drinking water. Will definitely do this again when all I have time for is a quick, local hike.

Very nice on a beautiful day..

Favorite run while visiting Newport Beach. Dirt trail, rolling hills, and partial coverage make this a fun, scenic, and comfortable run for those not afraid to tackle some steep inclines and declines.

I like this trail because of the challenging uphill segments and the cool ocean breeze. I like it even more now that I run into occasional hikers more frequently than I used to, so I don't feel like it is dangerous to go alone.

We did this around 8am it was perfect timing. The fog came in later so we had some great views. It’s started to get crowded around 930am.

Trail is actually 5.2 using Cougar. Nice tail in the city good to have.

Super fun trail, lots of random ways to go and not much structure, so if you like it that way this will be cool for you.

Got there quite early (730am) and it was very foggy on the hike up but the temps were so mild it was perfect. The include was gradual but you get a good cardio workout.

Definitely epic views.

Best part - briskly walking the beach hoping to not get my shoes wet... which didn’t happen

Beautiful! This is ranked as easy but if it’s high tide and you can’t cut across the beach, you’ll have to go back the way you came; if you’re new to hiking, the gradual inclines will get you a bit out of breath. But still an easy, breezy hike.

On oct 25, 2018, got out and hiked this trail, based on reading the feedback. I live off PCH, so this is really convenient, as the trail head on poppy ave is @1/2 mile from PCH. The trail is very nice and lots of greenery, is narrow in some parts, but just fine. It reminds me of the Lizard trail in Crystal Cove but not as tough, as there is not many steep hills. There is shade on the trail, and opportunity to take your cap off. The sound of water is soothing.

I hike alone, as I’m retired and get out on trail during the week when it’s not full of bikers. “Ihikealone”. Really enjoyable hike in the city.

Hiked this on a Tuesday as a part of a long loop from the Visitors center of 12 miiles. No water in the pools but lots of scenery and views.

Great trail to bring out of state guests and friends.

Nice trail. Beautiful views!

Beautiful beach trail. Keep an eye on the tide though if you’re planning on walking back on the beach.

Parking was the only issue, so get there early. The trail was nice & easy with amazing views. The trail by itself took about an hour.

A classic and iconic trail. Simple as that.

Many sick photo ops

Whenever my husband and I vacation in Encinitas, we go to Torrey Pines, not so much for a “workout” because the trail is really easy, but for the views! Gorgeous!

We parked on Poppy Ave for free and walked a block to the trailhead followed trail to the end and took bob cat trail back down which joins buck gully. Very nice and about 35% shade. 541 ft elevation took 2 hrs and burned 1000 cal. More of a moderate hike. 5.3mi round trip. Saw a 3ft snake:)

We went up the hill first and walked through many of the offshoot trails before going back down along the beach. Great trail. Loved it.

Closed Monday-Friday. They need staff on hand to “protect the area” in case anything were to happen. Curious if they hold your hand while you hike but I didn’t get the chance to ask him.

I really like this trail, I usually run to Santa margaritas from Ladera Ranch at weekend

I really like these trails. For the equestrian its better to go on a week day to avoid the many bikers that use the same trails. We encountered bikers even on the week days but they all seem very polite. Beautiful meadows and tree line most of the trails.

Very easy trail with many different branching paths. I feel like there’s always something new to explore!

lots of pretty scenery. if your brave you came even traverse it with a stroller.

it was a nice ride I road it on a weekend Saturday mid-afternoon, there wasn't a lot of people on the trail so that was nice the trails fairly thin and it's short but it's nice to just check out and get a quick ride in.
