    Michelle Panameno reviewed Sullivan Canyon Trail

    Love doing this trail when I don't have a ton of energy but still want to get out. I see a ton of off-leash dogs here and haven't had a problem with my dog off-leash either. There's no formal trash can anywhere on or near the trail head though - the only problem I have with it.

    This was a really fun trail that I did with my dog (off leash- he's good at coming when called and I can keep him on trail). It's fun because it's got great views and so many path options. I had to keep track with photos of the routes I was taking. We went down the stairs to the tagged bunker at the bottom.... It's got to be at least 800 steps! I'll definitely be back.

    Remember to leave a note with someone of where you're going and when you'll be returning if you're traveling alone. There was no cell service on parts of the trail.

    I've always loved this hike. It's a loop so you can start one way or another. Keep right and head to the back to start with the waterfall and a relatively easy incline/decline. Go left toward the stairs and get a good 20-25 minutes of steep hiking with a rewarding view at the top, and finish it off with the waterfall. Either way, it's bound to be a decent little hike. It's particularly great around this time so soon after the rain... Flowers are out and the waterfall is going. Bring sunscreen!

    Love this hike, mostly for its cardio. After the mile or so of wooded, in-the-mountain terrain, it gets super exposed to the sun on the fire road. It's steep for a few miles until you hit Parker Mesa. Nice view of the ocean. I've seen a few snakes up here. You can also find solitude in this hike as it's more difficult and less people take on the challenge.

    This was my first trail in the area. It’s beautiful and crowded. Not a ton of great landscape views but definitely a lot of vegetation surrounding you as you hike. I will say that if you have a water-loving dog like I do who is 75 pounds and wants to charge every time he sees water, I wouldn’t recommend this hike because you have to keep your dog on a leash, per the sign at the beginning of the trail. I let him off a couple times but only after carefully assessing that no one was around for him to knock into the river. Other than that, I had a beautiful time and I would definitely go back.

    I come here with my dog often. My dog loves it. What I like about this hike is that there are two path options to take: the one on the left is a steady incline, it's more of an inclined walk, and it actually does get shade for the early part of the day until the sun gets high enough. The path on the right offers a somewhat challenging bunch of hills that has steep inclines/declines. The nice thing about having these two paths is they meet up every 1/3 mile or so so you can ditch one path for the other frequently.
