Completely overgrown for about 70% of the hike and 30% partially overgrown. Not worth it even for the great views. Prepare to get whacked and prickles in your arms and legs. Do not recommend right now but could be a great hike if only it was maintained. There should be a warning sign especially given they're charging for parking and have active rangers giving out parking tickets.

Fabulous ocean views with beautiful lush foliage. Parts of trail are so overgrown with mustard plants that it is like walking through an LA style jungle. Wear long pants and long sleeve shirts.

Beautiful views! Just be prepared.. after this rainy season the flowers/ plants have grown fully blocking pathways. Don't follow to closely behind someone- you will be whipped in the face by plants, etc.
But worth the views!!

Ordinarily this would easily be five stars because it is gorgeous with lots of wildflowers. Saying this is moderately trafficked is a stretch though, with all of the rains it is extremely overgrown. I'm attaching a few pictures that shows the trail is barely visible. It's worth somebody going through with a machete. Great weather, nice ocean breeze, but protect yourselves against rattlesnakes. We got rattled at, which is a little disconcerting as narrow as the trail has become.

Beautiful right now! Very green with wild flowers scattered throughout the trail. Gorgeous ocean views with a nice breeze. Recommend going early, as we hiked out at about 10am, the trail was getting very busy. The parking lot is fairly small, but you can park on the street.

Hiked just after a lights rain. Everything was green and beautiful! I would absolutely recommend.
