LOVED this hike. Awesome view, parking in residential area is easy, not too difficult. It wasn't packed but there were a couple people on a Saturday. Very enjoyable.
Good 8-mile hike, lots of mountain bikes on Saturday.
Overall a great experience. Ocean views for the majority of the hike. No trees, though, so it is quite sunny and hot the entire time. The trails intersect and are a little confusing to follow, but regardless of the trails you take you get a similar experience. Slightly busy but not too bad. It is as hilly as described-there are more than a couple of steep inclines.
A great way to spend the morning.
Super easy one to do. You can park in the residential neighborhood and enter through the fire road entrance. You will go uphill for about the first 1/2 mile but it is easy and kids can do it.
