Lots of fun and things to see on this hike. Great mostly downhill hike. Have taken multiple groups of kids. Fun to end the hike at the beach and the cooler temps there. Bring water most of the year.

There is ample distance to hike. Has both easy and intermediate difficulty paths. Some places are a bit steep. Watch out for snakes.

This is a fabulous hike or bike ride. It is about an 8 mile gently downhill sloping grade that ends up at the beach. If we bike down, we have someone meet us or we drop a car at the beach so we don't have...More

Very easy hike with access to restrooms and water along the way. Mostly fire roads up until you get to the top of the trail with some single track. Great views of the ocean and wild parrots!
