Street parking on end of Yarrow drive. Walk west across an access road to trail head.
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.
It's a nice easy hiking trail. Offering different views of Santa Maria.
The scenery was pretty. The hike was a good workout.
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.
This is a truly lovely place to get out into some good old fashioned nature if you're not in the mood/unable to do a more strenuous hike. Lots of lovely photo ops, places to sit and journal, and different trails to explore. There are only a couple of slightly-intense uphills, otherwise it's pretty flat.
My first trail. I picked this place because it said "easy". For a first timer it seemed a little on the moderate side but its beautiful and so worth the moments of being a tad out of breath haha. Very natur-y So many nice people on the trail that helped us with where each trail led. Loved it! Going again tomorrow :)
Easy hike for my pregnant fiancee.
Beautiful. Nice workout.
