If you are looking for an easy trail, with ocean views & light traffic, this is a good option. Did it with a 4-months pregnant friend and she was fine. The only downside is a lack of available parking at the North end of the trail. We had to park on the street 1/2 mile up on Miramontes Point Rd and walk back down to the parking lot/trail head on the shoulder of a busy road. Though when we left, I also saw that people parked just outside the lot on the shoulder of Hwy 1.
