Pretty easy and short hike but pretty good workout. Mostly uphill. Did this hike with my 9 year old daughter, so I’d say kid friendly.

Hiked this again today and hardly anyone there. The weather was perfect for this hike today.

it was a good trail but was not easy at all...nothing but uphill kicked my butt for sure...we went out on a family hike and took the kids ranging from 11months to 12yrs and we carried the 11month old the whole time and the 8 yr old is special needs and he had a rough time we were looking for a nice walk with some water and a view but this turned into a full on workout didn't get to enjoy it as much...probably would only come here unless I was looking to lose weight and without kids. says it's easy and kids friendly but for us it wasn't...gorgeous views but not easy at all I give props to the ones who can do this a d do it more than once

It's been a while since I've gone hiking and I figured this one would be easy. This hike was all inclination but duable. I was expecting a better view. Overall it was a good hike but won't be hiking this trail again.

Great trail. Easy to moderate trail. Incline for at least a quarter mile but not to bad. Wide enough for social distancing. Would definitely do again. Helps you work up to a moderate hike.

Surprisingly nice little hike up an oak shaded canyon to some nice views all the way to the ocean. Be aware though that the climb, 500 feet elevation gain in 3/4 mile, is not "easy." If you're thinking of bringing grandma... don't.

Great quick hike when you need a touch of nature. Pretty empty for me so good for alone time too.

This trail is rated Easy . It may be short in distance but be prepared for a leg work out . All levels can enjoy this hike . Worth the views at the top with options to continue on to Other trails . Dog friendly ,a ton of bugs & pack Lots of water because shade is intermittent...especially if you continue on to other trails. Great for a quick work out as well.

This trail is rated as easy. However it is not easy unless you are coming downhill. It is a quick heart rate calorie burner going uphill for about .75miles. Avg grade about 18-22% with a few spots of 40 Its a great quick trail and I love it Either running or hiking

This would otherwise be a nice trail if there were conditions to prevent overheating. There’s no shade and the ground is scorching hot. There’s also no water spout at the top to refill water bottles with. This is definitely not a good trail for dogs with thick and long coats.
