Easy trail. Bog thistle trail is only moderately steep. Lots of ridge hiking. Cool views of Mt Bishop as well as Madonna. At the top is Morro view with a bench to enjoy the view!

There were no previous comments for this hike so thought I would add one. This was a really pleasant hike although much of the trail is pretty rocky. Nice amount of elevation gain to get some good views of the valley and even out to Morro Rock. It's not as much of a loop as it is an out and back, but that's ok.
I was really was not expecting to see wildflowers with how dry it's been, but was pleasantly surprised that there were still quite a few out. Also the cool ocean breeze keeps the temperature very pleasant for hiking.
We followed the signs to Morro Rock view and found a nice bench to rest on while enjoying the view before heading back down. The whole hike was just under 4 miles.

Good walk. My three year old daughter and my husband were with me. I had to carry her half of the way so it made it more challenging. It is a nice trail to use when you have your kids with you. Sometimes there are horses walking around too.

Easy trail. Dog friendly. Can be warm on a nice day but can get pretty windy.

Very easy. Great walk to push a runners stroller or just to get out for a walk.

Easy trail on a loop through what appears to be a former pasture. Lovely mountain and lake views.
