A trail that takes you through canyon and up to Moro ridge, with sweeping coastal views. The trail begins and ends at the El Moro Visitor Center. This loop gives you a tour of the El Moro Canyon, then climbs over 800' in elevation to the ridge line, where you'll enjoy some of the best coastline views in the park. Parking Fee: $15

Great trail for both fitness and amazing views. I like to do interval running on this trail. There are plenty of steep uphill and downhill sections. The view in certain sections is right up there with the best of them.

Nice walk, some pretty steep descents. a little bit of the trails are paved, other parts are pretty rutted. watch your steps and you can have a nice scenic walk especially around sundown. don't watch your steps and you will twist your ankles.
