Great trail and views. FYI - If you go to More Mesa Beach the local rule is nude beach to right and clothes to the left.

Great running spot with awesome bluffs. Stick to the main trails right now, don't venture onto smaller overgrown ones. My dog and I spent about 10-15 mins on a smaller trail and she ended up getting 70+ ticks! It's prime season right now, not usually this badat all.

This trail can be done in a comfortable pace. Not strenuous. The scenic view of the ocean is EXPECTACULAR. We saw people riding their bikes, walking with their dogs, and some horse poop. The entrance is surrounded by poison ivy. I will not bring a kid here. I wore long sleeve shirt, pants, hat, closed shoes and it helped feel a little safer when entering the trail. This was for about 10mins of walking. It was a great walk and great views. PS this walk was on Dec 2017. I am unsure if fires, mudslide, rain have affected the area after that date.

Didn’t feel especially safe. The trail is very overgrown and had a number of bees and poison oak. It’s also very secluded, and has a lot of little inlets filled with beer bottles. I wasn’t super comfortable finishing on my own. I made it to the first clearing and it was a gorgeous view, but definitely recommend taking a friend and wearing long pants!

Really nice hike by the beach. Avoid the entrance of the hike by the border of where you can park ends. Trail vegetation is overgrown and poison oaks is impossible to avoid.

I am a local and I may tend to be bias in my opinion of this trail as a "hike" Not a Hike!
It is a great spot for locals to access the beach behind Hope Ranch. (An affluent
community) The walk is entirely flat.
It is a great for dog walks, biking, and offers nice views of ocean and islands from trail at the edge of cliffs.
There are a number of para-gliders who practice there, as well as some who fly remote control planes.
By the way if you wish to hike directly to beach down the stairs. The "clothed" are to the left..
and the "unclothed" are to the right. Just to let Ya know.

If would recommend the Bluffs at Elwood or "Wilcox" at Hendrys Beach for Outta-towners.
