I did this walk yesterday. Absolutely beautiful! Don't fall for the disgusting portapotties at the beginning of the trail. There are several real restrooms along the trail. Plenty of parking. not much shade, so wear your sunblock.

It’s a great walking trail. If you’re looking for hiking trails, you may be disappointed, but if you’re thinking of a great walking trail for all age, families and dogs, this is the perfect place! We walked our dog along the trail and really enjoyed the scenery. The wildflowers, the ocean, and the birds are the best company alongside the trail. Moreover, the natural center (the Point Vicente Interpretive Center) has the whale watching event right next to the trail. We spotted about three whales when we were here! That’s such a surprise for the day since we didn’t expect to see whales at all! I see this trail doesn’t have lots of reviews on AllTrails, and I’d like to highlight it since we really had a very delightful and pleasant experience there.

Very nice and easy walking alone the costal trail. You can also get to see some nice houses on the side. You can walk the dog with leash on. Watch a beautiful sunset on a lovely Saturday afternoon:) easy parking. Sometimes you get to see rabbits. Fun!

Definitely easy. - not really a “hike.” The view is spectacular. Once you get to lighthouse, unclear how to proceed.

Not much of a “hike” more of a nice walk along the cliff side. Nice for families.

Extremely easy, more of a walk, not a hike. No shade, dirt paths are easy to walk on. Two parking lots on either end. Beautiful views. Lots of dogs.

Beautiful path along coastline where you can see Catalina, sailboats and best of all whales! We walked all the way to Terranea cove where you can climb the rocks to the cave. Stopped at the resort for a soda and then headed back. Just over 5 miles!

We picked this hike as our annual New Years hike. Every other hike we've checked out from All Trails has been amazing. Unfortunately this one did not fall in that category. First of all is should be rated at EASY not MODERATE. If you want to stroll along the coastline, this is perfect. If you're looking for more, get your heart rate going, look further. Don't get me wrong. The views are amazing even on a cloudy day. We could still see Catalina Island and even spotted some whales far off shore. We didn't go as far as the trail said because we ended up in what looked like a gated community. We turned back and took the trail to the beach. I'd say climbing back up that hill was Moderate but once you hit the top again you are back to a resting heart rate. Good thing is no bike riders. Lots of dogs but that was our daughters highlight. So all in all, well maintained walking path for a lovely stroll to the lighthouse and beautiful views.
