I enjoyed the Sunset Cliffs trail more than the park trail.

Spectacular. Beautiful views. Easy trail. Places you can make your way to the cliffs and beach if you want.

Really simple trail. There is a small rocky slope that leads to the beach below. Its is pretty steep and has no railing. I would recommend but not ideal for little kids.

Lots of newer trails with plants growing. Great views and easy to stay on flat parts. Some fun off shoots to the trail.

Unfortunately the Sunset Cliffs Trail is CLOSED but fortunately you can still walk along Sunset Cliffs Blvd for incredible views. A lot of the parking on Sunset Cliffs Blvd is closed off but still some available

Doing a lot of replanting so not the prettiest trail with a lot of orange netting everywhere. Trail wasn’t labeled well. You could go off in a million different directions which eventually connected but it was a guessing game. Part of trail that was actually alongside the cliffs was worth seeing though

Beautiful, over crowded, excess traffic is ruining cliffs, no bathrooms, not actually a park.

Nice well maintained path with great views of the coast. Parking lot is being renovated so it is closed but plenty of parking on the street and in the neighborhood.
