Nice view of the ocean from parts of this trail, but the majority of this hike is on a wide, dirt road. This would have been more pleasant on a cooler day or earlier in the day, at only 78 degrees+ it was brutal. Some shade, benches or a water fountain on the trail (like at Runyon Canyon) would be nice for these hot days.

beautiful scenery! great hike overall!

I did this hike today. I'm a pretty amateur hiker and so far this hike is my favorite. It's the perfect length and difficulty to make for a casual

Beautiful trail! There’s tons of variation to go through in the preserve too. Just be prepared for lots of incline. The whole area’s on a slope so its a lot of going up and downhill.

Absolutely love hiking here. Last year it was too foggy to see much though. This year we could not only see the hillside but also the sand and surf below. Very beautiful!
Only caveat is that there are several trails. You have to pick one and pay attention to the signs or your app or else you may end up doing a much more longer or more difficult hike than planned!!

Nice easy hike with amazing views of the ocean. Trail maps are available at the start/ends of the trails, but very hard to get lost

Great place to relax and clear your head.

This is one of my favorite hikes. Easy to moderate but if you want a little challenge go up the Cristo Que Viento trail. The views are stunning and the degree of difficulty gives your body a good workout. Very little shade if you hike later in the day. Great dogs on leash hike.

Great place for different level hikers. Easy hiking on fire roads or moderate on the trails. Either way the views are breathtaking.

beautiful trial for mountain bike, and good exercise going back to my parking spot

Love the views.....great for a short walk !!!

The views are incredible. The Paintbrush Trail was closed at some parts. I just went for it, but it became clear the reason was the cliff it walks below is super unstable with tons of erosion, so I would recommend taking an alternate route I’m definitely never going on the closed trail again.

Ended up being an 8 mike hike. Super pretty views!

Nice views ! Great place to bring your dog

Beautiful views and very peaceful!

Trail was closed today due to maintenance/weather

This place is great for family hikes, easy and fun for kids...one big main trail and small fun rigid trails cut through it.

This was a surprisingly stunning hike with some seriously breathtaking views! Catalina Island is so much in clear sight that I nearly lost my mind. I sat at the lookout for at least 30 minutes just gazing at the ocean and the island.

I would suggest keeping your phone on you to track the trail because there are so many side trails to get lost on. There's also a lot of up and down, so be ready for strength training leg work as well. Overall, the 3 hours or so it took to complete this hike was well worth it.

Fun area with lots of trails and beautiful views. I recommend it and will return.
