This is a very nice trail, which could be enhanced lot more to give a great experience to the Hikers.
There are many trails routes but many are not marked. It not easy to get lost but you may miss out on some.
Of course it is a jungle, you should expect wild life, Snakes etc. at the entrance they should inform the enterant, how to deal with them.
They have a small parking at the base, thus they tell first timers to go up to the half point and park there. When you drive up, you just lost half the hike.
I did not see a nice trail to hike from the base, many people were biking, jogging next to the road.
The other side of the cliff, is the sea. That makes the view great but it takes away from the beach. The shore line is not so great, for which i am not sure what anyone can do. But by adding couple of dollars to the entrance fee, they can use the money to mark the trails better and enhance the hiker experience.
