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.

It was a bit confusing trying to find where to begin the hike but just walk through the golf course and signs will lead you to the trail. Keep going along the rocks and the trail will continue. I ended up just going along the beach (rocky and sandy) bring sunscreen, a camelback, a sheet to lay on the beach if you want to take a break and enjoy the scenery. Loved it because there was not a lot of people at all and I came on a Sunday afternoon.

Lovely hike.

Parking cost $6

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.

wonderful views!

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

perfect challenges climbing over rocks for the young kids

Nice trail, beautiful views.

Extremely peaceful hike. You can go a little further and challenge yourself hiking down to pelican cove.

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.

Great with little ones. No steep hills. Very minimal inclines. Plenty of spots to stop and view the ocean and have a snack.
At the end there’s a rock beach that’s fun for exploring.
Also clean bathrooms and picnic tables towards the end.

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.

Gorgeous seashore landscape and few people actually. Almost all the way exposed to sun. No outlet on the east side, you have to get back the same route becuz of private property

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.
