Great little trail in Long Beach. Went on a weekend when there were quite a lot of people. All in all a nice break from the urban sprawl.

Lovely but crowded.

Found this to be a bit to isolated and there's some squatters that hang around. Be careful.

Easy trail for kids. Lots of shade. Not much workout. Paid parking.

Excellent getaway. Reminds me of my home in Oregon in spots.

Nice city trail. I did this with my lab and she loved it --as she was introduced to horses up close on the back of the loop for the 1st time. I will do this again since it's close to house and gives the feeling of being away from city in some areas of the trail.

This is a nice trail. It seems to need a little bit of cleaning up. some of the brush just seems way to thick. Also this trail is probably much prettier in the winter or spring with flowers etc. in August it's just really dusty and there are a lot of spider webs but obvioulsy that just comes with the area. Nobody can really do much about that. It would be nice if the description had mentioned that there you have to pay for parking (cash only). I went on a Friday so it was 6$ on other weekdays it's 5$ and I think 7 or 8 on the weekend (sorry didnt really look at the price on the weekend). I would probably come more often again if there was no parking fee.
I went with my one year old. I carried her in a backpack a stroller wouldn't have been fun here. It's a little too sandy. Maybe one of those jogging strollers with big wheels would be fine. We saw a few animals : turtles, squirrels, a crane, lots of birds, dragon flies and even a little bunny. It's definitely a great trail for children. Very easy to hike.
