Great Vistas of canyons and Pacific Ocean. Desert trail recommend floppy hat and lots of sunscreen. Up and down topography makes for a good hike.

Great trail. The 2nd climb at Old Emerald Canyon was a killer. Completed the run in 1:46.18.

It was fairly easy. There were a couple of super steep hill but for the most part manageable. You can get several nice views of the ocean but for the most part you're in the environment.

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.

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.
