Relatively easy, well-marked dirt trail with quarter-mile markers. We did the Brooks Falls Trail on the way up and the Montara Trail on the way down with two kids in carriers. The toddler walked until he was tired - the trail is pretty easy for kids. The waterfall was only a small trickle, since it's been awhile since the last rainfall. Views are great (both mountains and ocean), and there are benches periodically for resting and lookout points. The trail is partially shaded, partially exposed to the sun.

Great walk. Did it with a 2.5 year old. It's uphill so something to consider.

Loved this trail - it was relatively easy, secluded, and fun. Took about 1.5 hrs with stops for views.

Rather than the loop, it's better to turn around and come back down from the top. The second half of the loop is views of roads and houses.
