The trails span approximately 3.17 miles and are rated as moderate in difficulty. Hikers can expect a steady incline with a few steep sections, making it suitable for those with a moderate level of fitness. The trails are known for their unique natural features. The Burma Road trail offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island. The Ishibashi trail, on the other hand, is known for its landslide scarp, a geological formation resulting from a landslide. This trail also passes through a section of the Paintbrush trail, which is named for the vibrant wildflowers that bloom in the spring. Hikers are advised to wear sturdy shoes due to the uneven terrain and to bring plenty of water, especially during the summer months. The trails are open from dawn to dusk, and dogs are allowed but must be kept on a leash. Parking is available at the trailhead.
