This is a really great walk, especially this time of year when wildflowers (Paintbrush, Lupine, Sticky Monkey, multi colored Yarrows) and non-natives (Radish, mustard, chilean lotus) are in bloom. Views are great. The trail section getting up to the bluff from parking is easy for most but challenging for people with knee or limited mobility issues, especially coming back down. Trekking poles helpful for them or recommend starting your hike from the harbor parking access instead (Jean Lauer Trail) as its a more wide and gentle grade. We often extend our walk through the neighborhood and into Fitzgerald Marine Preserve via the old road along the coast and its a roller coaster that demonstrates well why some bluff edges should be avoided.
