Lots of little trails going off of the one mapped here, I kept having to check back to the map. A nice little butt burner right at the end

Good trail! Not easy, not toooo tough but definitely not flat! Found some nice and steep parts. Going to try it in reverse next time. Mostly unprotected(no shade) but there’s a bunch of large sage bushes that provide a little bit of cooling! Some funky smells out on the trail today... may just be a certain plant I’m not used to that’s blooming, but it wasn’t the most pleasant thing. People were 95% super respectful about putting on masks when passing! Overall, great views & a good sweat!

More of a road than a trail. No shade and you can see the uphill horrors that await you. Took a shortcut down.

More difficult than expected. A lot of the trail was muddy due to the rain that just came thru. Major leg workout, up and down.

Open beautiful. Baby on my back and it was fantastic. Spacious. Greta views. We went at 9am. Might require more water / sun protection later in the day.

A very quiet hike with very few spots where you can hear any traffic noise. Beautiful scenery, great ocean and mountain views. Bring plenty of water. Some parts are quite steep. The map is a little deceptive as it doesn’t show all the switchbacks.

Really quiet trail with nice view of the south coast from the top. Trail is well marked; almost all forks lead to trails that come back together so you have little chance of getting lost if you’re a newbie or don’t have a map. Look forward to coming back in the spring!

I hiked a loop at Parma Park Trail and it offered some sick views of the ocean and mountains. It’s a little shaded but mostly exposed to the sun but it was nice and cool in the morning. It’s a cool hike and has multiple trails to choose from.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful views, lots of wildlife, clear skies, and a cool breeze. The trail is pretty steep in some areas, and you have to be careful of your footing on the dry dusty patches, but overall a very nice trail. There are sheep currently working clearing brush in some parts of the park, so you have to be careful not to touch the temporary electric fence they’ve put up to corral them.

Great when ur in a time crunch and want to sweat! If I hiked the whole way I can see 1.5-2hours (I’m fairly active) but I was fast paced walking and Jogged on all the down slopes and a few up took me 1 hr exactly :) easy to follow especially using this app:) has service at all times on trail!

It was a great hike even in the fog. We started at abt 7:45 and the fog was thick so we didn’t see any of the scenery. The trail was empty until about 8:45. We saw goats on the drive up to the trailhead and beautiful deer about half way into the hike. Pretty cool.
