I really liked it here so pretty a lot of friendly people. Several trails including a long set of stairs if you want to up your game. Very close to the beach. Downside, parking is tough as the park is in s residential area. And all the trail maps do not show all trails so you can get confused on which trail you are on.

Nothing wrong with this trail but there is almost no shade at all so I would not recommend it on a hot day. I bet this is a great trail for a sunset hike though because of you of the coast is amazing

I came on a Saturday and yes, parking gets full easily but I was lucky enough to find parking at around 11am. The trail wasn’t packed at all! I guess it depends at what time you come. There were a few steep hills but nothing that can’t be handled. I would come again!

nothing like starting on top of Crenshaw Blvd and ending up in the water haha. first time doing this trail but definitely doing it again.

Nice and easy going down.. You get a burst of cardio coming back up! Many trails to choose from in this little area.
We hiked this trail at night, heard mountain lions screaming and a dog yelping.. then it went silent. Keep your eyes open.

It does not make a loop it's strictly going down hill and then coming back up. Definitely a good work out! There are a lot of little trails around the main trail.

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

That hill coming back up was ooowee!!! But I’ll do it again. Nice walk

I really love this place

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.

Beautiful views

Nice hike for a weekday, but on a weekend it is way overcrowded. Parking is very hard to find!

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.

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

view was great, plenty of splinter trails, good workout on the way up. :)

Great place for a hike! Love Palos Verdes and the amazing views!
