Great, very scenic trail. Thankful to live close enough to enjoy it often.

Great trail with awesome views! Easy & quick, but if you go towards the Tide-pools you'll extend the hike & discover marine life. It's adjacent to the Torrey Pines gliders, which you'll see gliding above you throughout your Hike. Depending on the season, you'll stumble onto a *nude* beach ;)

No dogs allowed. Was disappointed about that!

It’s very relaxing

Great beach trail

One of the best hikes I’ve ever done! Beautiful views and tons of options. Would love to go back and do a trail run next time!

Good up hill workout. Nice rainy day hike with fog. Not many people. There are two entrances along the road. Park at one and take the trail at the top that loops back down. Then walk a bit on the road back to your car where you started.

Really great trail! Lots of bikers when I was out. There was a closure that stopped me from doing the full loop but other than that this was a really nice trail.

Love this trail. So so beautiful. The California coast is hard to beat. Trail is very easy, but well worth it!

A very good and well managed trail

FAVORITE. Surely breathtaking views! It’s an easy trail, but let’s just enjoy the views.

It's been several years since I visited this trail and now I remember why. The trail was full of runners and packs of cyclists so most of our morning was spent trying to get out of their way as they came passed. We started before 8:00am and there were already a lot of people on the trail. If you are looking for peace and quiet, I do not recommend this hike.

It is a beautiful view. Don’t listen to the 7.7 miles it’s more like 10 miles but it’s fine still a nice view. My aunt went with me she was 8 months pregnant it was really easy for her.

It was a good hike for the dogs, not very crowded at all. Pretty, easy hike, a couple narrow spots but nothing even moderately difficult. A little muddy, but hey, it’s been raining and that’s a good thing.

I’m giving it a 3 because I was really hoping for the 4.5 mile hike and it was only about 2.5, and according to the map i stayed on trail. The locals told me it was only 2.5 miles around the lake as well. I don’t know if I would have drove from downtown Sacramento for just a 2.5 mile hike.

Great trail , beautiful views , other trails you can take for more scenery , love the coast views

Not too hard, a little steep at times. Can see SJ, SF, and Oakland from the top!

Pretty nice hike, the elevation switches up a lot and once I got past the all the way up junction there wasn't that many people out there. It was a really beautiful out there, blue skies and lots of sage.

Took a morning jog from Spanish Landing to Seaport Village. I avoided the crowds by going around 0830. View is beautiful of the bay. A good playlist and lots of sites to keep your mind busy as your walk, jog, run, or bike this route goes by quickly.

This is my very favorite trail to take all levels of hikers! The beauty of this hike is so amazing and easy! Even difficult trail hikers love it!

Was a fun trail took about 3 hours to complete. You get to see a great sight of SF through the trees. It was the first time actually going on a hike with my girl and my dog.

Biked and walked this many times with my family when we vacationed here.

It was a long walk with an 11 and 5 y/o but they did It!
We went on a Sunday and it was busy.
The falls were pretty and we enjoyed some of the small off trails by the creek.

A nice trek indeed. You are surrounded by nature's beauty throughout the different stages of the trail. The only thing to watch out for are the horse/dog droppings. Will definitely be back to this trail again.

I really liked this trail. Although you can hear the sounds of the city in the distance, they have done a wonderful job putting this together. It would be even better when they have the waterfall turned on. Looks like the stream would run through the separations between the pads on the east part of the island.
