I really like this location and I visit here often. Nothing like the ocean while walking and hiking.

Overall this was a nice walk with a great view. It is a combination of dirt path plus cutting onto the bicycle lane of the street. Overtime the bluffs have become unstable and it has caused the route to change from path to street. A lot of people like to watch the sunset here. Just always be careful when you get close to the edge you never know when it could collapse you rather be safe than sorry. Overall it was nice, but the reason for minus one star is the combination of walking on the road.

This is Not a trail just a walk on small cliff near the ocean. However, it’s beautiful.

Very easy trail. Literally a stroll at the beach. Peaceful and quiet. Not too much crowd. You can also run, bring your kids and dogs, and even surf (bring your surfboards!)

VIEWS! One of my favorite easy hikes. Not a loop tail. Parking can get annoying but if you are going to hike don’t complain if you have to walk 3 blocks :)

Easy but beautiful run right on the cliffs edge overlooking Sunset Cliffs. Usually heavily trafficked. Great for jogging/biking. Nice constant windy breeze.

Nice little stroll don't expect an actual hike during this time. You can walk down to the beach and dogs are welcome.

Great for a stroll, definitely don’t have to do the whole walk. Simply beautiful... & in April there are wildflowers!

I end up catching atleast one goat thorn per tire on this trail. It's kinda fun, with some asphalt mixed in. The trail does scale the cliff side for about 1/8th of a mile. That's the only exciting part to be honest.
