Good slopes for exercising. Nice vistas of ocean. Cool bike trails. Love how many trails feed into one another so there is lots of variety.

It's a lovely trail that's mostly uphill for the first half of the loop. The views are spectacular and totally worth the climb. I was surprised how extremely loud the 5 freeway noise was on the west side of the hill. it's such a shame, it really takes you out of the serenity of being there.

The beginning is harder you walk up quite a bit it’s definitely a roller coaster up and down. Love this hike feels like a good work out

Went around 4:30. I was looking for a quick little hike on my break from caregiving in OC. It was pretty quiet with a pair of ladies following 100m behind but other than that it was just me and the occasional mountain biker. I just stuck with the loop albeit towards the end where I went for a steeper path that eventually caught up to the route. Easy place to customize some hill training and get a good workout in. Also beautiful views tucked between the residential areas of this area of OC. Quick and quality getaway right in your backyard!

I don’t know why this trail is rated moderate; my dog and I found it extremely difficult. Lots of steep hills

Awesome trail!! There is a lot of cyclist but all were friendly. Sunset is quite beautiful here. I’ve chased a few sunsets but this one is top of my list. My pup did great and there is coyotes here so just be careful with your pets. Great workout with the roller coaster type of hike. Questions? @lulu_and_nature
