Some parts narrow and difficult to social distance. Lots of families. Noise from Skyline Blvd

A beautiful hike with a nice view of the ocean. Lots of exposure though. It made it tough to enjoy in 100 degree heat.

HikingGreat!

Very nice, quick, flat, easy trail. Pleasant changes in scenery, beautiful overlooks of hills. We went in the late afternoon/evening so we could hear lots of crickets, which was lovely. Many fat, brown lizards sunning themselves on the trail. The pond was small and the trail that goes around it doesn’t provide views of the whole thing, but the views that were available from the docks were very pretty. Listened to frog sounds. Only saw a handful of other people on the trail, which I always appreciate. Good balance between sun and shade. Taking our time, enjoying the view, it took us just over an hour or so, round trip.

Very pretty, easy length and extremely quiet. Bit hot in parts that weren’t shaded.
