Great, well-maintained and marked loop trail. Beautiful, stunning views! Coyote Run Trail portion was closed, so we picked up Wood Canyon Trail, adding approximately another mile or so to the hike. Be cautious - Most mountain bikers seem to lack trail etiquette! All in all a perfect Sunday Funday, though!!

Nice trails, beautiful views.

The trail is nice, Maintained with a fantastic view.

First overnight trip with my eleven year old scout. Tiring but a lot of fun

Had a great time. Amazing ocean views.

Pretty good trails with beautiful view. Love it.

Hiked this trail down to shoreline, over to the Beachcomber and back. 10.5 Miles. Beautiful views.

Great hike, good work out

Nice walk

Nice trails. Great views.

Amazing views

I enjoyed this hike. We took west ridge from the park entrance and over to rocket. Easy to moderate. There are a couple of hilly areas so a good workout. It is mostly open with a tree partial area. A couple of trails are closed because of the recent fire. Had to hike another 1 mile. Definitely worth doing!

It was amazing view! We loved this trail and will come back for the ocean view for sure! We hiked 6.2 miles for 2 hours!! Early morning is recommended as there is not much shade or canopy.

Great workout, watch out for flies on the uphill climb. Views are pretty sweet.

Love this trail- great hills for the hikers and plenty of running trails for the runners.

Great work out with some challenging inclines. Watch out for mountain bikers on the narrow fence line trail portion of the hike. Bring a hat and plenty of water.

I love this hike for the following reasons:
1. It close to home - anywhere in south LA County or Orange County.
2. It is near the beach, so great views and bonus of spending part of the day on the beach after the hike.
3. Trails offer a variety so you can get the work-out you desire: short, long or difficult.
4. Choice of 4 campsites if you want to stay overnight.

Beautiful Mother’s day hike

I saw a coyote pup and a rabbit while hiking on the trail. Beautiful views with well maintained dirt roads. Up and down steep hills all along the way. Bring plenty of water - a great trail for running!

Great hike, not too difficult. Only one uphill stretch otherwise very straightforward.

no shade. nice view of the ocean.

Great hiking trail with multiple hills and great views of the Pacific Ocean. This is our go-to hike near our home in OC.

Great moderate hike, some of the inclines are a bit challenging but totally worth the views at the top. We took this counter clockwise and would definitely recommend doing the same so that you are rewarded with the breathtaking views at the end! Loved this hike and will be back for more in Crystal Cove!

Nice trail, has only one strenuous-ish ascend, the rest is pretty much easy/moderate. Saw a pack of coyotes who were scared off once we approached, lots of bunnies and birds. There were beautiful mountain views at the top and right before the descend (we went clock wise). Parking is $15 for the whole day but there’s a sunset rate from 5pm till sunset which is only $5. Saw a tow truck on the way back right before sunset, I guess they do enforce their parking policy. Definitely recommend and will come back.

Beautiful and challenging

We went to this trail at one of the hottest days in this summer. It is not an easy hike in the hot weather plus an exposed trail. However, an occasional ocean breeze is pleasant. We finished the 5 Miles within 2 hours! A nice Sunday work out!

Amazing place

There is no shade on this trail, as described previously. It would be a better hike on an overcast day - I was there in the full sun. The trail is well maintained. you don't have to go far to get a view of the ocean. Not sure there is enough on this trail to attract me back again, but it was a nice outing.
