love this trail, multiple terrains water year around. Great place for people who want to get out.

My friends and I have dubbed this hike "booty blasters" because of the workout your butt gets going up the hill! The view at the top is worth the climb, especially in the Spring. Brought the jogging stroller last time and took the side trail back down the hill. Bad idea! Too narrow!!

I went there with my baby, it was a nice day.
We had big fun hike both way down to the hot water and hiked up the hill.

Nice and easy for a New Year's Day hike!

Great hike!! Be sure to bring a change of socks and shoes because there is water crossing.

Enjoyable ride, but pretty easy to lose the trail if you're not paying enough attention. Decent frontage trail for the MTB'ers, but this is mostly a roadie trail. So leave your knobbiest tires at home and prepare for asphalt 50% of the time.

It is a very pretty trail.

I like to do this one for a run or walking with dogs/ mom

BIKES PROHIBITED

Drove all the way up here to find that mountain bikes are only a allowed on a small area from the north access point to the reservoir. One star for misinformation.
I did drive up to the walnut staging area from the north and rode the trails, but would only give this 2 stars for mountain biking. Go somewhere else.

Beautiful views of the coastline!

the first three miles on the trail are a bit steep but it's definitely worth it!

Beautiful and excellent trail run

Great hike! Loved the river crossing and watching the brave souls bungee jumping at the bridge was a good laugh!

Beautiful to go on a bike

Had a wonderful day riding bikes and enjoying the beach. Great day!

What is marked as a trailhead appears to be on state prison grounds. Has anyone actually done this hike?

Great trail. Several river crossings, so be prepared to get wet!
