Nice ocean views. Easy to navigate. Appears to be very popular and well used. The trail is sandy and/or hard pack. The doggo off-leash space is not enclosed like many other off leash dog runs.

Douglas Family Preserve has 4 access points. If you are driving there, from what I could tell, the most available parking is probably at Arroyo Burro Beach unless Hendry's is packed, in which case head for one of the other 3 neighborhood entrances. From Arroyo Burro Beach the main trail is a 1.5 mile closed loop. Once you go up the hill from the parking lot, the park trails are relatively wide and flat with minimal obstacles. There are a lot of paths crisscrossing the preserve.
Nice spot. Probably a fantastic place to catch a sunset.
