I love this trail and all its beauty. Its moderate, bring water (or gum & chapstick) if doing the whole trail; the wind can really dry out your mouth.

Love the view - a great sunset hike. The connecting trail behind the yellow gate is still closed and has been since 2015. Not sure when it'll open.

Excellent 17-ish mile wandering up Ray Miller, NW and up over Mugu Peak then down to LaJolla up SE to Wood Cyn then down Sycamore. 4th of July. Only recorded last 6 mi or so.

The trail behind the yellow gate is closed but the other trail was open. It was an overcast day but still pretty view of the beach. Saw lots of cool lizards and flowers on the cactus. Definitely recommend
