Had a great time! Made a quick edit of the hike.

Beautiful views. Easy hike. You really can’t beat the ocean views. Plenty of places to stop at a picnic bench. Trails are clearly marked. I’d give this trail 6 stars if possible. Worth way more than the 4$ parking fee.

Great trail with amazing view most especially at the peak. Definitely one of my favorite trails.

Great hike and the views are incredible. Definitely check the wind conditions before you drive out here. The wind was very strong while we hiked, which was okay for us adults but would have been too strong for kids.

Beautiful view from the bench at the top!

Nice hike and great for kids ... last stretch was a good work out and wish the waterfall had more water flowing down. Get there early to get parking or you may get blocked in like i saw today for some folks. Canyon was nice and cooled towards the middle but get great views and sun once on the ridge.

Love this trail!! I do it multiple times a week and I still feel like I see something new and that I am challenged every time.

This place is pretty cool lots of little spots to stop and check out. Trail splits to different side of mountain we took right side wich leads back to parking lot.

This actually was an amazing hike in the later part of the day...nice and cool and then the sunset over the ridge. My kids and I (3yr old daughter and 7yr old son) did the whole thing including the hillside going up from the mansion with ease!! Def. a family hike...but careful on the later parts...its a steep ridge so keep the kiddos close :)

Started this on the opposite end at the Sycamore Canyon trailhead off the PCH. Beautiful canyon run on a fire access road. However a few miles in the dirt road turns to asphalt for the rest of the trail (or if you’re going along the route described it’d start asphalt then switch to dirt.

Great views, clean trail.

This trail is beautiful. Last year the waterfalls were running strong. There are a lot of options on this trail to hike at different levels. We enjoyed it very much

Trail is easy to moderate at best. Ruins are cool but not super impressive. The waterfall is mainly just a trickle. Probably a good hike for families.
