nice hike it was very hot and dry not private or secluded highly trafficked
dipped in the ocean at the bottom to cool down
we took it down on the north side of the loop back on the south but should have done the reverse the view is a lot nicer going down on the south part of the loop
also be aware if you take side track that they my end on private property with do not enter signs
we had to back track a few times...
Nice trail.. a lot of downhill at the first half.. second half is kinda horrible especially if you have a hard time on inclined area but its all worth it.. spectacular views.. really good work out..
