Beautiful sunset and awesome access to wildlife! Be careful not to crush the abalone and barnacles on the sharp rocks!

Being a beginner trail blazer, my excitement is taking me to new places. My friend and I stretched up at the top where we parked and were speechless at the view. We followed the signs that took us down a narrow broken dirt path. My hesitation lasted only a few moments then, we saw a brownie troop skipping up the incline. Once at the bottom, left would have taken us to the heavily populated tide pools. To the right we walked on washed up or out rocks right along the waters edge to the life guard tower, climbed a couple of boulders and started to walk towards a very big surprise we had forgot about......the narrow broken dirt path. And that is where the real workout began. Stopping twice to catch our breath, we were able to stand and admire the most picturesque view of the ocean and Catalina. Parking was $4. I have panic attacks and major anxiety and after this hike i felt the best i had felt in almost a year!

Love this trail! So much fun and lots of things to explore! The cave area is so cool by the tide pools. Saw tiny crabs, fish, coral, anemones.

Wasn't as easy as other people led on to be, but a good workout nonetheless. Great views, my dog loved it.

Ok so we went to the top of one cliff and walked down on a steep trail. It was beautiful but I would not classify it easy, especially getting back up.

Short, easy, pleasant with spectacular views. Dog friendly.
