This was a short hike. The trail is easy to follow, and not much of a workout unless you run or walk it twice. Additionally, you can walk on the rocks that are strewn along the shore, just tread lightly. The trail is next to housing, it seems to be a hotel. So just be weary of public and private areas. Overall, the trail was short, and a nice walk, with great views of the sea. There are some files around, so if you are not a fan, come prepared.

Very nice trail with awesome views. It’s relatively easy to climb up and down the trails from Cliffside to Beaches along the way. If you are very observant you’ll be able to spot the WWII bunker adjacent to the trail. The bunker has three levels under ground typically three gunner mounts with a bunk room on the bottom level. The bunker is sealed but once you spot it you’ll see they are so hard to find.

Many view spots out to ocean on this moderately rated trail. Mostly clear today and t-shirt weather. Loose terrain and a bit of elevation. Hiking shoes help.

Really pretty and very easy (more of a walk then hike) several trails that will take you to the beach. More recommended for sightseeing or taking a leisure stroll.

Great hike. Some trails are closed so we’re not able to do the loop that the all trails was showing. I Gad to do a little longer. Worth the views. Good workout

Amazing trail! Not a beginners course! Steep hills and lots of different terrain Very very nice views!

I took my dog in the trail and it was a nice hike. Not too long and only a little elevation. Dogs not allowed on the beach so we took a few other hikes to get back to the parking lot. Beautiful views.

I agree with previous reviews that there's no shade, super hot during the day, and very dusty. Prepare for a big climb coming back, but great views! Rattlesnakes abound, however.
