dogs on leash
I did this trail not too long ago with 3 friends of mine and we all loved it. I did the 10 mile version all the way to the peak and then kept on going until the decline eventually hit the highway. Great trail, it's a knee burner so bring some water and wear the right clothes . Start early morning at sunrise and you'll love it !
Took my son's girlfriend who was visiting from Alaska and she loved the hike as well as the views. It was cloudy and raining at some points of the trail so we didn't have clear views of the ocean, but still beautiful. Not too difficult but challenging enough. Lots of loose rocks near the top so wear be sure to wear proper shoes because you do slip a lot.
This trail should be downgraded to easy. The trail to the waterfalls is on a well marked path. I was a little disappointed when I arrived to the falls because the drought has reduced it to small puddles. I did enjoy the hike and there are others trails that branch of that I would like to explore. Good hike to come with kids and pets.
