Great day to be outside. Such a clear view to Catalina! The hike itself was ok. Well kept trails.

What a scenic hike!!!! The views were gorgeous. You really need to use your recording because there are SO MANY trails one could get confused

Great views, especially in the late afternoon. Note that part of trail indicates a turn into a section marked as private property. I had to take a detour to avoid hassles.

Very pretty with some great ocean views. Some steep hills - but what better thing for a tightened butt? Not a ton of parking; there were a few spots but it was a Monday morning. Weekends might be hard.

Nice trail space, wasn't overly crowded but populated. This specific set of paths has 2 parts closed off so be prepared to change it up.

This trail would have been great but 1.7 miles in, the trail is closed. I tried to improvise by taking a different trail but there isn't another that will take you down closer to the water. If I were to do it again I would start the loop and go counter clock wise. There are more trail options that way. Take plenty of water. Even though it's near the water, there isn't much of a breeze.

Easy to moderate little hike enjoy the beach views. Unfortunately we went in December and it had been raining so we got a lot of mud. Was difficult to walk so we had to go back. Would definitely like to go back to enjoy the views.

Very chill hike, make sure not to go off trail though, a park ranger threatened to cite us for laying down off trail to get a good view, but nonetheless this is a great little hike.

Beautiful views with downhill hiking and stairs.

It was a beautiful scenery, very breezy. Good trail but very intense when you go all the way down to the beach area to the Trump National Golf Club and then it became rewarding down by the beach, the hike back up was super intense. I would definitely do it again though!

Beautiful location for a nice, easy-going to moderate hike (depending on fitness level). I recommend wearing actual hiking shoes/boots, despite it not being a difficult hike, simply because it's a bit slippy going downhill. Overall, wonderful place to go through at different tide levels. Would recommend and would go back for morning hiking.

Nice hike with tons of trails to take. Over looks the ocean, great spot to take my dogs. We really enjoyed it.

A decent climb back up to the trailhead. Great views overlooking the ocean. Nice elevation changes.

You get nice views of the ocean and it's good to walk your dogs.

Awesome trail. Went with my boyfriend and 3 dogs. No shade so make sure to bring plenty of water. Gorgeous views!!

Nice View, No shade, no wildlife, almost no vegetation on 50% of the area. This is a good place to mountain bike.
