Easy short hike. We had it all to ourselves. It was muddy due to the rain. A bit of snow near the lake.

Beautiful trail right next to the ocean. Easy trail with few uphills and then downhill. Good amount of harmless bugs but manageable. Only downside is skinny path during downhill which makes it difficult to enjoy beautiful view but this will last for less than half a mile.

The last stretch of road to the trailhead is not paved — while my 2000 Camry and a Honda Fit were able to make it, I did hear the bottom of my car get scraped a couple times :( There are three creek crossings that required walking across a log (and/or stepping across stones). Overall, very pretty and a nice, easy day hike.

TICKS. If you bring your four-legged friend, be ready to pick 50+ ticks off them. We did the full trail, all the way to the ocean, and will wait until after tick season to return. Otherwise, an awesome trip!

Is this still open? Pls let me know

My family and I hiked this trail today and it was beautiful. It’s definitely a lot of uphill, but not terribly steep. There is some ice towards the top, but my trail runners were fine (no micro spikes needed).

Great view the whole way. The trail took us through a closed route. We didn’t finish the whole trail because you walk along the road quite a bit at the end. My dog was not having it, when cars passed by so fast. Did this trail 03/09/2020.

Beautiful, very peaceful people are very nice. Loved the sunset.

Beautiful hike. You can either start at the bottom or the top. My family and I started at the bottom so we could enjoy our way back. The entrance is between two houses if you start at the bottom. Once you enter, there’s many beautiful wildflowers and bees. The bees are fine and did not bother us at all. The hike is steep, so have some shoes that are comfortable. My husband and I hiked with our two year old strapped, but I saw a few older kids with their parents. There’s two mountain tops, they are are beautiful and well worth it!

Nice hike of about 4 miles, especially our 4yo. The stretch along the beach was tough on the ankles since it was very rocky. Also walking back along old PCH was a bit precarious - there are several blind spots created by overgrown foliage which hide speeding cars. Pay attention to the rules around white/red dot parking rules. I saw the park ranger writing a lot of tickets.

It is open and nice trail. It is easy and you can enjoy with dogs and kids. Easy to park not fee.

Great but short trail. It rained almost the entire time which added to the beauty and ethereal nature of the scenery. Despite the rain the trail was still not muddy. Great short, non strenuous hike.

We got here around 10:30 in the morning and it was surprisingly busy, considering the rainy weather. It was a great trail, the incline was pretty gradual. The trail gets real rocky after about 1.5 miles. Once you get there, the views are beautiful.

This trail was fairly easy. Being new to hiking, I don’t think I can make a solid classification though. The trail was very clearly marked, some areas were much wider than others. To get to the point there is a steep drop that we decided to slide down instead of walking, but we felt safe the entire time. I wish there was an easier outlet to the water itself, but the views were impeccable and the fresh air was much needed. Otherwise I would do this hike again.

Great morning trail for my four year old and myself. It was kind of difficult to have good footing due to the loose dirt and rocks. The trail is very steep with no side rails but the walking path was wide enough to feel safe. We had to crab walk down some sections but that’s due to our poor shoe choice. When you get to the bottom you walk through a very small patch of overgrown plants but then you see the water within a 3 minute walk. Very rocky but you can turn left or right and there are spots where you can lay a blanket or some beach chairs. Overall a pretty good way to start your morning. You will get dirty so dress accordingly.
