This is a really great walk, especially this time of year when wildflowers (Paintbrush, Lupine, Sticky Monkey, multi colored Yarrows) and non-natives (Radish, mustard, chilean lotus) are in bloom. Views are great. The trail section getting up to the bluff from parking is easy for most but challenging for people with knee or limited mobility issues, especially coming back down. Trekking poles helpful for them or recommend starting your hike from the harbor parking access instead (Jean Lauer Trail) as its a more wide and gentle grade. We often extend our walk through the neighborhood and into Fitzgerald Marine Preserve via the old road along the coast and its a roller coaster that demonstrates well why some bluff edges should be avoided.

Done this one many, many times with my dogs. Incredible views especially when the surf is up!

Good views, wide trails. A few spots to traverse down to the ocean. Lots of trail cutoffs and extensions for longer/shorter hikes. Saw one garter snake. I hiked it but did see some bikes, many runners, and dogs.

Hiked the beautiful trail on a cool clear winter afternoon with the trees overhead and the sounds of the waves crashing from the ocean nearby. I personally recommend going around late afternoon/early dusk because the sunset is absolutely gorgeous. The trail in the marine reserve itself is short but it connects to another one further north to an unmarked (Bluff?) trail which leads to Point Montara Lighthouse.

Incredible views of one of the greatest big wave spots on the planet, Mavericks. My dog love this trail and knew every turn. It is much better to park on Airport and avoid the crowd. I miss living in HMB...

Never done it on it's own but I've done it as part of the hike to Half Moon bay. Five stars for gorgeous location/views...

Great for seeing marine life and a nice and shady hike though the small patch of trees.

Short hike. Good for families. But the real draw are the tide pools. Come at low tide and explore.
