This was truly inspirational. Have to careful to look for signs on trail - not many - use the GPS on phone - great views of the shoreline and the downtown. Go early to beat the crowds.

Trail is well maintained with varied vistas. Lots of off leash dogs on the day of our hike, which is great if you like them and not if you prefer to be left alone. Take some water along and enjoy the various plant species.

This trail is really a main thoroughfare to a dozen routes that can lead you out around the mountain range. It's so gentle, early on, and has some picnic benches, that even if some of your group members don't want to proceed up the more...More
