  • 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.
  • It's pretty fun to explore and definitely beautiful views. It does go on a golf course for a bit of it, but that view is basically Jurassic Park, and I've heard they're trying to get it fixed
  • 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.
