We tried to hike this trail today but it was closed 7/8 and 7/9 for trail maintenance. Bummer! I’m giving a 5 star review though because the trail looks pretty awesome. We ended up parking at Fisherman Trail and walking down the wood steps to black sands beach and it was a fabulous day!

Great day hike. There are a few sandy areas that you need to be ready for. Saw total of 50 or so tule elk throughout the trail. Also no shady.

My first ever hike in Orange County. Had so much new experience, I've been hiking for so long this hike still got me few of my first time. The hike going up is hard but the end view and breeze as we get close to the end of our hike. The amazing sunset. I highly recommend going in the afternoon around 4 or 5. It's not too hot but it's a perfect time if you wanna see the amazing sunset. As you're starting your hike, go straight first and take that trail if you're doing the loop. An amazing finish is waiting for you.

Very well taken care of. No over growth. Beautiful views and all flat. Spot the seals in the ocean!

The best bang for your buck! Arrive early and park on the street to save the $10 parking few. Take your time walking the entire loop and enjoy the little extra trails to the beautiful scenic views. We took about four hours but it was leisurely and was really one of the most enjoyable hikes.

Hiked from the road down to Emerald Bay, then to Lower Eagle Falls, then a ways down the Rubicon Trail, and back.

Beautiful trail that has a great view the entire time. The beach was small but the view was amazing. Too bad the rangers cut down the swings :(

Pretty hike. Elevation starts at 12K feet, so you will hike slower than normal. Worth the effort though.

Great hike. Lots of stairs. Not dog friendly, lots of cat’s tail.

Stayed for 4 days in early July. Weather was perfect. It got chilly at night but felt great with a bon fire. We got to see a red legged frog, seals, and whales at a distance. Fishing is great in the area as well. Bathrooms were replenished and cleaned every morning. Campgrounds have minimal, if any...shade, so prepare accordingly. Also the campground is surrounded by spiky stickers that cling to everything. Careful where you place your tent, it might get micro holes on the bottom (we used a footprint). I would also recommend you stick to walking on the paved road to head to the bathrooms and wore socks with sandals and only got poked a few times. I do suggest you are careful with little kids if they are still learning to walk and stumble and fall. The chances that they will get a sticker on them are pretty high. With that said, also be aware of how the stickers may affect your doggies. Maybe dog shoes would help.

Nice trail. A little overgrown in some places. Like other reviewers have said- go clockwise for views on the return.

wild place these days- lots of homeless folks in cove, in trees, in sea, in parking lots. lots of naked men as well. heaps of trash- human and dog feces, used condoms, alcohol bottles, etc. graffiti everywhere on the window/cave. gorgeous scenery though!

Definitely rate this as hard not moderate, lightly trafficked and the springs were beautiful. Worth the work... I think.

Add it to your bucket list. start early and pack plenty of water and you camera/phone. Definitely a moderate hike. Absolutely gorgeous scenery. trail was clean.I always bring a garbage bag and pick up trash on my feet down but there literally was not one piece of trash to pick up, I am very happy to say. On this particular day in July we had zero bugs but I am told that sometimes there are bugs. There are periods of deep shade, tree roots, small streams to cross, rocks to scramble over, and open sections on the scree field with no shade at all. There is an old miner's cabin near the top. basically, this trail has it all! We would have loved to have kept going but definitely would have needed to pack more food and a lot more water. It was a fantastic work out!

Beautiful trail with amazing views but an obscene amount of mosquitoes. Don’t forget bug spray like I did!
