Nice trails, good bay view. Watch your step. There is way too much poison oak.

The trail itself is well maintained. It does a nice loop with decent amount of wildlife to interact with. The main gem of this place is taking your dog and allowing them to run off-leash when you get to the top. This is a huge advantage over your normal dog park.

Things to note:

There are no trashcans so you have to carry dog waste out.

Bring water for your dog to make sure they have it. It can get hot.

Nice easy trail, good for entire family, but short and limited view along the way but still a good experience if you are starting off or with kids/dogs.

This is my go to place if I need to get a quick hike in but I am short on time. As a previous reviewer stated, this is not the Pulgas Water Temple but is the Pulgas Open Space Preserve. I would place this a little harder than easy. While I think beginner hikers will do just fine they should keep in mind that it is not flat. Dogs are allowed and there is a bathroom along with trail maps at the trail head. Bring plenty of water because it gets really hot even though there is a lot of shade.
