Went with two beginner hiker adults, two five year olds and a baby in a backpack. So many little snails that the kids called it “snail city.” Baby had fun too. We apparently got confused on the trail and ended up in the inner loop by accident so if you suddenly find yourself going steeply down, you’re going the wrong way. A little cliff walking and a slight incline. The trail was totally doable and enjoyable for everyone with the ocean views and the cute snails and the occasional cool beetle.

This was a neat simple trail, there is a pretty heavy hill u have to climb to get up to the bunkers but it’s well worth it and def very doable with breaks. There are rattle snakes up there also so keep an eye out. Oh and lots of little snails on everything!

This areas claim to fame is where a devastating landslide took place in 2011. A large portion of Paseo Del Mar road slid 50’ into the ocean. It’s now been turned into White Point Nature Preserve … a place for hiking/picnicking. Although, only the most dangerous spots are fenced off, it’s very easy to just walk around the fence for a birds-eye view of the ruins. Low flying Police helicopters and numerous No Trespassing sings are everywhere. There is also the remains of an old military installation and a staffed nature center to check out.

Fine neighborhood walk. Met a lot of nice people. It rained yesterday and there were big puddles at the higher elevations - my dog loved them.

Started hiking to cover popular trails in And around PV. White point was the first one and it didn’t disappoint to start with. Easy but beautiful views and history to learn on this trail. Good for relaxing and letting it go mood

It was a nice little walk. Very short but the view is nice if you walk up to the bunkers

Nice little trail. Great breeze. Easy parking. No shade.

Great hike for anyone and any age .. Great views and a little military history involved in this hike as well

Quiet and easy to get to but more of a walk than a hike.

This is super close and super easy. I go here often because I live so close. It’s a great way to decompress.

This is an easy hike around the bluffs overlooking Royal Palms and a baseball diamond. It is a historically significant area for California as well as national defense. Several placards are on the trails talking to the history of the area as well as the flora and fauna.

More of a walk than a hike. Nice for my daughter and dog to go out and take a look. There are many different flowers and the view of the ocean is nice. People have started to leave trash around unfortunately and aren't picking up after their dogs. This definitely takes away from the beauty of nature. We also went down to the tide pools but unfortunately there wasn't much to see. It was fun walking on rocks though!

Fun walk! Wouldn't really call it a hike, I take my dog here about 3 times a week and he loves it! The coyotes can get a little creepy before 9am though

This was a fun park near our house that the kids enjoyed coming to. Never gets to far from the parking lot so it is easy to cut a hike short and head back. There is no shade along the trails but the bunkers are well worth the stroll through this urban park.

Nice day for a hike, view spectacular. Two hills pretty easy. No shade and a steep hill on the east side of the preserve. The worker was very friendly and informative. Great beginner hike.

This 4.88 mile hike along the beach on Palos Verdes Peninsula is packed with spectacular views, geological wonders, and fascinating history. Visit tide pools, the infamous Sunken City, and a World War II missile site! (Date hiked: January 2, 2012.)
