It’s busy. Not everyone is wearing masks. But it is easy to give them space. The trail is dusty. It’s downhill at the start and then uphill on the way back. On a hot day it makes for an amazing workout. And the views of the ocean make the hike enjoyable and interesting.

there are don't dried twigs blocking done of the narrow ways... be careful not to get cut. Some bikers fell on the way down as well, so be careful

Great trail. I went with my son 12 years old and it is easy but it is around 3 miles and more. I saw a raccoon. It has a portátil restroom. I found very pleasant and i enjoyed it a lot. I found a tree which I rested a little bit. I really recommend it.

Again, like all the trails in Palos Verdes we should AVOID AT ALL COSTS! Jumping and biting Flea infested, blood thirsty Rattlesnakes, and blood sucking ticks. Trails are overgrown and not safe for human visitation. See pics of our most recent encounter!

Overall good trail with mostly moderate to difficult areas. Minimal shade but well marked. Some areas are single person width only. Beware of rattlesnakes, saw one just off an open area of the trail yesterday.

Trail closures meant having to modify the loop a bit, but this is a location I keep coming back to for a short but fun hike.

I don't usually hike, so for starters this trail is a bit difficult. The way down is a bit painful on the ankles because of all the rocks. And the way up is tuff if you're not used to hiking. I had to take several breaks going back up. Definitely take water, no shade. Lots of bees but beautiful sites. I would definitely go back. Great workout!

Great hike. Some trails are closed so we’re not able to do the loop that the all trails was showing. I Gad to do a little longer. Worth the views. Good workout

Some sections were closed, but get there early before the heat sets in and it’s nice & breezy with an ocean view!

The main loop is still closed but can do a little detour and is a great little hike.

Great trail but a little over grown in some areas. Scenic views but no shade with some very soft trails going up the hill.

Nice views. One trail was closed but we easily found another way. Good to record to keep on track as there are many turn offs. Couple tough and rocky hills. Bring water!
