super easy, just go early in the morning or in the evening as it can get pretty warm.

Easy, and kid friendly! We got to see small lobsters and enjoyed a patch of shade at the Felicita Creek! Bring sunblock and more water than you think you'll need at least 2 liters per person. My recording stopped along the way but we started at the Sikes Adobe Staging Area... Happy Hiking!

Nice place for trail running, as the trail is wide and relatively flat. Wish there was more shade. Close to the freeway, which is convenient, but creates some noise. If you wear headphones, you won't even notice. Dog friendly:)
