Trailhead to the left once you enter the first parking lot. Took the Blue trail and there were several mild inclines along the way. Overall it was a pleasant hike, but I unknowingly took a few outside trails and found myself exiting into residential neighborhoods. :/

very easy walking trails. Great for elderly, children, dogs etc... flat and mostly packed dirt. Not much in the way of views on this side.

Love this trail! You can make it short or keep going further back to prolong the hike. Not hard for kids. Also fun for kids to see the frogs and lizards out there.

Fine for just walking. Very boring. Nothing to see. You will not get exercise unless you sprint the whole thing and throw in a couple burpies.

I do this trail at least once a week. It's easy enough to take children but, still gets your heart rate up and it's beautiful.

Good hike for beginners. The steep incline at the beginning is the hardest part, but the rest is easy. I've taken a stroller up there, as well as had my 2 year old hike it and she did well. Great view from the top, on a clear day you can see as far as the ocean! Awesome hike if you want to spend a few hours out.

Not bad but seeing as how it was my first time here and was unfamiliar with the trail it took me a while. I took some GoPro footage so maybe I can upload it on YouTube so you can see what the trail is like.
