Great hike, the way back up is a work out, so bring water and a hat as well since there's only some shade. Still a awesome hike, with an even better view

Beautiful view!!! No shade so bring water and maybe don't go on a hot day, like I did. I will definitely go again for a sunset walk. Everything is in bloom and there lots of trail choices to choose from. Keep an eye out for snakes : )

There are a lot of different trails to get down to the cove. My planned route almost worked but some of the trails were closed, so I jumped from trail to trail. I managed to make it to Palos Verdes Street and crossed it. I went through the archery area, but there was a signed posted stating that most of the area at the cove was closed due to possible rock slides. I made it down but didn't want to take the chance. The sign said there was another part that was open, but I managed to find that trail and it was closed. It was my first time out. I did manage to take some of the closed trails on the way back to the top and they were in pretty bad shape. One trail actually did have a tree fallen in the middle which forced you to climb up a hill, but only about 5 feet or so. It wasn't hard to get around it. All and all it is mostly down hill, until you turn around to come back. I did about 1,500 feet of climbing within 7 miles.

Great views from the top!! Currently lots of closed trails. Burma road/trail closed off due to rain and necessary repairs. We took rattlesnake trail to Kevin canyon trail to Burma road trail. Not easy on the way back up but I did it with a 6 year old!
