This is actually a really cool trail but it's a bit washed out and there's some uneven parts. it's not long by any means but there's some questionable spots for sure. Steep edges and overgrown poison oak line much of the trail. Can be frustrating with little ones trying to keep them from exposure with the poison oak. Also, wife got stung by a hornet on the shin after knocking him off an overgrown branch so make sure you're careful and wear pants!

Good hike to take the littles. There were some bugs, but I didn’t see any ticks. Careful though—plenty of poison oak—but if you are careful to stay on the trail you’ll be ok. Recommend taking the counterclockwise loop out and back due to overgrowth (some poison oak too close for comfort—we had a small exposure!) between the endpoint and the clockwise start point. Will go again.

to see the water it's out of the way and down a hill that you have to go back up.

if you want to go down to the water it's out of the way and down a hill that you have to go back up eventually

Good, easy trail for a short hike with kids, aged 5-11. Easily marked and not steep.
