Great variety of trails with beautiful views.

It was the perfect hike that was not too challenging, but enough to work up a sweat!

Many options of trails with beautiful views.

Overall pretty hike- but two of the trails on this particular route are closed. If you truly follow it - you make your way through area of very loose soil on the RIM trail and the second closure is close to the cliffs/ water. That piece of the trail is completely blocked and no one can enter. All elevation is at the end (as the information shows).

RPV has limited parking here, so weekends are tough. Lots of people on the weekend. There was another review that said the heard Mountain Lions: we don't have them here, but there are coyotes.

holy crap the uphill parts! great views though and a lot of side trails to explore if your into that. Make sure to bring plenty of water though lots of sand and little shade on some stretches. Part of the trail is marked off as private property someone should probably update the route. Once you get to the bottom take a different route up and you should be fine there are plenty of trail maps out there. Everything is pretty well marked there so it should be no trouble getting around.

Beautiful place to walk/hike along the ocean! You turn on Trump Nat’l Drive into golf course then hang a left, there’s free parking/no time limit but the lot isn’t huge. There are picnic tables off the greens to chill. You can do the main easy trail (some parts paved) with ocean views or hike one-off steeper trails to the beaches. I hadn’t hiked in years and I was fine with all. Says “No Animals” on beaches (probably just for safety, it’s all rocks) so use your judgement :) I will be going back!

Good challenge hike. Nice views with cool ocean breezes.

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 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 short walk, great for kids.

Easy walk, family friendly. Beautiful scenery.

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 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.

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

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.

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 view!! my son loved the hike!

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.
