Easy trek. Really good for kids that you want to get them into the idea of hiking. Not steep at all. Just wish dogs were allowed at the destination (rocky Beach with cave). Otherwise definitely fun!

The hike itself is short, but you can continue on the beach. Getting to the beach requires a sturdy foot. The trail down, at least the one I used, was steep. Their are rocks at the very top of the beach to walk over. The beach was great. All the sand when I went was wet, making it easy (and fun) to walk on. It’s all very beautiful. There is no shade.

The hike was somewhat short but we continued on to a separate trail to make it longer. We took our two year old and he really enjoyed the beach portion of the trail. Downside to this spot is that there is very little shade, but the view is beautiful.

BEAUTIFUL little hike. I think parking fees were waived that day. Walked for a bit, took a seat off of the trail near a trail down to the beach & had a little snack, then headed down to the rocky beach. It was a little rough on my feet, walking on those rocks, but it was totally worth it. I'll wear different shoes next time.

Not easy for people who have a harder time getting around (small children, older people.) Very pretty once you get to the bottom. A little bit of tide pool life. Very very rocky and hard to get around. Overall cute short hike.

Easy hike but one of the most beautiful in Southern California. If you can, explore the tide pools. Worth the risk!

Very easy trail. Mostly just used by families for beach access. Somewhat stroller friendly.

Took my family (8, 6, and 4 year old) hiking. Had a great time. No issues, even had a little picnic on the shoreline. Great scenery of the cliffs, beach was clean and quiet. Went during noon time on a Saturday and not many people. Almost thought we had the place to ourselves. Good time, do it again and very family friendly. Kids enjoyed it.

Beautiful location, definitely a must when in Palos Verdes. Make sure you go during low tide for maximum exploration. Beautiful, even on a cloudy day.

Beautiful scenery but steep trails up and down. It's a short trail but I wouldn't call it easy.
