This is a gem of a trail (or several trails) in Ranchos Palos Verdes known for its sweeping landscapes and ocean cliff views. You can consider it our local Big Sur. The trailhead is next to the Del Cerro park which is a beautiful overlook of all the hills and valleys.

My friend and I wanted to do access the "Rim Trail" but unfortunately it's closed at the moment because of erosion or some kind of preserverance reason. Because of this it led us just to explore the numerous side trails all over the portuguese bend which all eventually led us downwards toward the highway that hugs the cliffs. If you skip across the highway, you can access the Inspiration point and the Sacred Cove down below (please only go turing low tides.)

One the Most Scenic HIKE Ive ever been on from start to finish you get the best view of PV. You get the beauty of the ocean clashing against the sand shore and tons of greens that you can easily forget that you are in LA, pretending you are at some remote island.

The Hike has tons of different paths you can take, my friends and I took the advance path also the short cut. The path we took had a lot of small falling rocks and super narrow and steep, so be very careful going down! It completely took my breath literally away when we climbed the same path back up! You def work up a sweat even as easy as the hike can be.

The hike is short, people take their dogs and even mountain bikes and some even take their horses. So its perfect for a bit of out doors activity, bring a light jacket as it will get breezy since its very close to the ocean!

The view once again was breath taking and its so worth the hike!
