Trails were relatively well marked...trail descriptions were accurate in terms of the effort needed for the hikes. Great view of the ocean on your way back via the elevated trail(s). Would definitely recommend for novice hikers and/or those looking for a workout.

The campgrounds are at least two miles inland from the beach. There is a tunnel that goes under the freeway that gives you access to the beach
