Really really cool path. Lots of artwork and abandoned areas that add a great bit of ambiance to the walk. Some interesting tidepools are also a short walk away.

The area is closed. Definitely not good for children simply because to get around the gate requires scaling down a steep cliff side. Disappointment. Unless there's a safer way to get around the gate.

Very easy trail. Took my 5yo. He loved climbing the rocky path. Great views of the ocean. We walked to the pier after. Probably should have brought some snacks for him.

More of an urban exploring adventure than anything but that doesn't take away from it if you know what you're getting into. You have to precariously hike around the perimeter fence to get to the Sunken City part--on a busy enough day you just have to follow the people to the path but don't worry, it's there.

Some neighbors have rallied to open this up to the public and some have fought it but I imagine it'll continue to be "off limits" because that's just the status quo.
