This is a good walk starting along the Malaga Cove beach and then up through the Lunada Canyon. The second half is a descent mostly on city streets and then a small cute canyon through Palos Verdes (parallel to the 'official' path). There were very few people on the trail today which was pleasant. The one short steep slope in Lunada Canyon was slippery (due to recent rains), but manageable. The canyon was lush green (my dog loved it). Would have been 5 stars if fewer city streets.

Started this trail on the ocean side with beautiful views, then went through some nature reserve. One steep include and moderate inclines throughout. Not a lot of shade. Lots of residential. I’d recommend turning back at the half way point (see trail map). Second half of the loop is all through residential streets. Trail is not marked well and had to use the trail map. Might consider bringing a battery pack for phone if you’re using the trail map the entire hike.

Mostly residential with a path through nature reserve. Not a lot of ocean view but the homes are beautiful and so quiet. Unfortunately so much was pavement.
