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.

As mentioned before it's not much of a hike, but more of a walk through to see some cool graffiti, over what used to be a city.

To Whom it May Concern, I am a police officer with the LAPD Harbor Division, which includes San Pedro. Currently the area known as "Sunken City" is closed to the public; there is a perimeter fence and no trespassing signs posted to illustrate this fact. We recently did a sweep of the area and cited a large number of people for trespassing. Everyone cited will have to appear in court before and judge and will be facing penalties of up to 6 months in jail or a $1,000.00 fine. Make no mistake about it, if you are caught trespassing in Sunken City by Law Enforcement, you will be cited and or arrested and will then be facing a similar consequence.
