We enjoyed a short hike up the trail but were disappointed to find that the toilets at the car park were in a very dirty condition. They need to be checked more frequently.

Not their fault but the area is closed because of rain and poor trail conditions as of 2/12/19. With more rain on the way who knows when it will be open. Call ahead to check.

If you are a hiker this is a good spot to go. It has a lot of hills combined with flat land. It is by the ocean so it does have a breeze in some areas. It has 3 different trails. It also has a...More

The trail is rather close to the road, which I don't really like. But once you get in the trail a bit, it gets more quiet. Beautiful view from the top, great workout getting there. Wish I could bring my pups tho!

I would make sure the trails are even open. Due to the recent rains they were not when we were there in mid February
