Amazing views! Loved this hike 5 stars! Although it was easy I really enjoyed looking down and seeing the view of the coast, you have to drive up a huge hill to get the the parking lot. Not a lot of parking available which can make things difficult but I found a spot on the side of road. Not a lot of shade but the beach air keeps you cool. There is this part of the trail where it’s super overgrown so you might get poked by some bushes but no big deal. Took my friend & I about an hour to finish the trail, definitely coming back.

Really pretty trail, not a tough one and very appropriate if you are hiking for the lovely ocean views, rather than the exercise or challenge of it

Did about half this trail towards the ocean side. It's nice and easy with amazing views! There were a decent amount of people around and tons of cute dogs, but nothing too crowded when i went. definitely a must hike!

Limited parking 6/25 4pm . I had to park a little way up the road. But that also means that not a ton of people on the trail. I saw about 15 people total. I love that you can either take the fire road or wind through a trail. The sweeping views of the ocean and the mountains at the far end are stunning, even on a hazy day. Don’t let the easy trip to the cliff fool you. The way back is mostly uphill. So an easy hike out is a little workout on the way back.

The trail was decent, views would have been quite nice if it wasn’t such a hazy day. However the limited parking will make it so I do not return. There was tons of people when I went, and to our surprise upon return to out vehicle (along with all the other vehicles in the area) we got a ticket. Middle of the day on a sunday. Would not recommend if it is crowded whatsoever.

It’s definitely all incline on the way back but not too bad. The scenic drive to and from the trail head make it worth it!

Great trail!!!!! Not too busy. The views can’t be beat at all! Service is sketchy but who needs their phones on the trail. Not steep or overgrown.

Great trail for families. Glad this one was open for stage 2 during the pandemic. My husband and I took our 2 year old, and 10 year old sons and our dog. The trail has some inclined parts that might be difficult for little ones, but we were able to manage. Lots of room to stop on the path for the littles to hydrate while staying out of the way. The views are spectacular! Only con is the massive amounts of flies buzzing around my head.

Only a few parking spaces on the side of the road. Didn’t see too many people, only about 15? There are two major uphills going to the top of the canyon but not anything I couldn’t handle (amateur, just started hiking). The views are amazing!!!!!! Didn’t go to the other side on the trail, the views are probably just as amazing as the top of the canyon. Also there is phone service!

The most beautiful ocean views. Very flat. Confusing paths off the main trail in overgrown parts. Got a little lost at times.

Beautiful views of the canyons and ocean. Trail was wide and easy to follow. Several out and back routes. A few steep areas with rocky scree but overall easy. No shade. Free parking along the road but very narrow and winding road to get there and back.

Good easy trail with some awesome views. There were a fair amount of people, but enough space along the trail that it didn’t feel crowded

Great views of the Pacific Ocean, Malibu and Santa Monica. Easy peasy hiking with little strenuous portions.
