This approach (from the PLNU campus) starts high up the hill and offers a good cardio climb on the way back up. Gorgeous views and ocean breezes!

I come here a few times a week. I like pretty much everything about it. The ocean is great for your spirit.

View of sunset was a 5... I rated lower due to construction that was underway. Parking lot closed and serious erosion near cliff edges. BE CAREFUL with children.

Beautiful little trail. Super easy and can be done with kids. Go before the sunset and find a place to enjoy the sunset. You won't regret it! Parking is available on the street but the closer you go to sunset time it's does get harder to find a spot.

Great views along the coastline. Parking is available on the streets with a few small parking lots dotted every half mile or so. Pleasant roadside trail

We went to Sunset Cliffs to take a walk, get out in natural and enjoy the sunset. I knew I wasn't there for a challenging hike. This was a post Thanksgiving recovery hike since I was dealing with many blisters from a previous hike...this was perfect! it provided incredible views and allowed us to climb and explore so we could be kids again for a little bit. As of Thanksgiving 2018 this trail is still under construction but it did not hinder our experience in any way.
