Trail runs from here to Half Moon Bay and further. Great walking trail. Dogs and bikes allowed. Great scenery.

It is paved and goes mostly through a golf club. It was awful.

It was okay. Nice views but a paved and boring trail that goes through a golf course. Would probably go right at the parking lot instead of left if I come here again

Pretty little walk going past some lovely coastal views. Hang out by one of the beaches and watch the waves crashing onto boulders. Peaceful ♥️

Scenic walk alongside beach cliffs. First meanders around Four Seasons properties, then crosses a golf course, and then continues along fields. Fairly popular but not too crowded. Several opportunities to go down to the water towards the southern side of the walk. Windy.

The trail was nice and easy... meaning it was paved and went next to the Ritz.... it’s certainly not a trail it’s for golf carts. The beach is the nicest part at the end and you can let your dogs run off leash. But be prepared for people from the hotel and golf course looking at you oddly as you hike past.

A little muddy a day after rain. Paved further down. Nice being by the beach. Good trail and also with a dog.

Easy trail to find and run, walk, or bike on. Easy parking. Brought my dog and ventured down to a beach below the cliffs after the walk.

Very easy trail. Only things to watch for are golfers and if there's an event going on at the Ritz Carlton

Beautiful views of the cliffs along the Pacific Ocean. Depending on the time of year, you may be able to see whales just off the coast. Passes by the Ritz Carlton.

I use to live next to this and did it many times but the way this is drawn on the southern end it goes across private property. The farm workers never said anything to me and i talked to them at times but beware when you go south of the golf course it's private unless it's changed in the last 3 years.
