Alright and easy hike. But nothing really interesting to see. Very mountain bike heavy on weekends.

Even with the dripping cave trail being closed, you have so many other trails to help that other .4 miles you are missing. Me and a friend ended up getting even more miles in which is even better! Best time to hike in this area is definitely during fall times. The leaves were so crunchy to walk around and I loved it.

Easy out and back, pretty heavily trafficked. Lots of mountain bikers. Nice views of the coast.

Great views. Not crowded and dog friendly.

Nice hike, and my advice is to go up first because it makes the part through the creek so sweet.

11/11/18 Short trail to Dripping Cave is currently closed. Saw lots of deer, coyotes, and different birds.

More of a nature walk than anything. It is on the edge of a neighborhood and you can walk up Pacific drive to access the park. Goes up to the edge with ocean views. Well maintained and great viewpoint for ocean pictures.

Short and sweet but it's a steep incline! I like that it also leads you to the Toovet Trail so you can make it a longer hike that is equally as rewarding.

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!!

This allows dogs- not sure why it says they are not allowed.

Great hike that connects to 3 other trails. It’s a great but hard work out, with awesome views the whole way.

Great hike, good work out

Is a nice hike, but you need to watch for bikers

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!

Looks can be deceiving! It's looks super easy but will kick your butt in the way out! Beautiful view on a clear day!

Nice easy trail to follow.....TRAIL closed when you reach the turn to go to the dripping cave due to regrowth from fire. So unable to finish the last .4 miles. Tons of rabbits and a nice cool creek to splash your face if you get hot

No hiking gear necessary except for maybe some water. This is really more of a running trail for locals but in our hot California summers, the ocean breeze and views are stellar. No shade, so bring a hat and sunscreen. It’s easy and flat, perfect for a before lunch walk. Recommended for all ages who enjoy the urban outdoors. This is a highly populated upscale area so the relative seclusion, even on a weekend, was a plus.

Amazing hike! The car wreck was very cool to see! It gets warm...go early! There is not much shade. It's $3 to park in the lot, but there is some street parking nearby. Definitely will do this hike again!

Great views, but double-back instead of looping on Pacific.

I loved this short but ass kicking trail.

This trail really has a lot to offer and it can be as easy or moderate as you choose depending on the path. Lots of parking, signs. The main west trail is wide and has inclines in both directions. We went out today in hopes to hike to car wreck trail but a quickly spreading wildfire stopped us. Hopefully it won’t ruin this beautiful trail and park or homes!! We will definitely be back

This is a nice walk, not a hike. Wide trail but a steep drop on one side so keep kids close. Houses on one side and the canyon with ocean views on the other.

Watch out for the targeting doves they will poop on you !!!!!

It's a decent walk but wouldn't consider much of a hike. On one side you have a beautiful view of the canyon and ocean but on the other side are houses. Also the fairy houses are no longer on this trail. Once you reach the end of this path it ends on a street but take a right and continue up the hill to the first street you can make a right on. you will see a nice little area to rest but continue further to Sea View park where you can see a large panorama view of the ocean. Please note there are NO bathrooms on this path. Plenty of foot traffic but not to busy when we went. It's was a nice outing fun for a one time but probably won't do this one again.

We parked on Ridgeview and started at the trailhead on Highlands. The first 3/4 of the trail is uphill and can be a little rough for those who are just getting in to hiking or are a little out of shape. I know I caught myself needing to catch a breather! The rest of the trail is easy and it is wide to accommodate walking and cycling in both directions. The trail ended at pacific island drive. We turned right and continued up to Talavera Dr turned right and continued a little way to a park that had a few benches where we ate lunch and enjoyed the ocean view. We then continued up Talavera Dr to Seaview Park where we followed the dirt path to its end and were met with a full panoramic ocean view. If you are heading to the Aliso Summit Trail to see the fairy villages.... they are no longer there. As of August 2017 the fairies went back to Ireland lol!

Enjoyable, easy walk with great views.

Easy trail on the way down. Ends at Aliso Peak where you can either go down Valido trail to the beach (moderate) or go back. The hike back up is a good incline

Beautiful scenery and great incline, I wish it was longer! If you follow it all the way down to the 1 then you reach the beach!
