  • Lovely trail, you can actually skip most of the golf course by sticking to the more rugged coastal path, wear hiking sandals or tougher footwear when you do, you'll be walking on sharp rocks most of the time. Flip-flops are fine when you stick to the golf course trail though.

  • This is an excellent trail for a morning hike. I don't like that part of it is alongside an active golf course, but it is a small price for a beautiful view.
