Photos included here are NOT of this trail - this out and back trail does not include views of the ocean, those were taken from the overlook trail that is beside this trail. This is an ocean-level walk through the canyon, which looks nice but is not scenic. I don’t recommend this trail so much for hikers or runners, it is primarily mountain bikers, and there are a lot of them. Really just a long flat walk. I would skip it and opt for the hills around you.

Very boring. Just a flat dirt road, nothing to see. Mainly made for mountain bikers.

I loved this trail! went off the main trail and up the mountains, ended up right above PCH.. the sight is breathtaking, and some cyclists informed us, if you follow the mountain trail, it can take you to Newbury Park, 12 miles they said.. next time I may take that challenge ;-)

Hike is mainly on paved path that can get tiresome on your feet, especially round trip of 15 miles!! This hike would be better for bikers as not much of view for a good 5 miles.
