Its a paved road mostly, but still a nice place to walk your dog, or go running. No shade for most of it, nice views and convenient to downtown San Clemente.

Very easy suburban hike with just a few hills. Just enough view of the canyons to make it feel like you're in nature without really having to go to far out of the way. Park in the residential area near the trailhead - lots of parking is available. There's a couple of picnic tables along the way, trash cans and doggie bags for your pooch as well. My small terrier did great on this hike. I might suggest NOT going in springtime, as the final hill - which probably would provide an amazing view any other time of year - was completely covered in mustard, and you couldn't see anything. Remember, folks, mustard is a weed, not a super bloom!
