Really enjoyed it...can't wait to go back and do the whole trail!
Did this hike today and enjoyed it tremendously. It is not a walk in the park because like most hikes in Southern California you have to climb from sea level but not bad at all. When we got too winded just stopped for a minute then picked it up again. It was about 80 degrees so not too hot, wouldn't do it in July but there was also trees along the way for shade. This one will go on our list to repeat. Safe hiking :-)
Nice wide trail makes it easy to walk side-by-side with SO (except for north/west portion of loop). There are lots of coastal live oak trees along the way (again, except for north/west portion of loop) so there are plenty of spots that offer shade. It was very quiet and clean. Keep an eye out for rattle snakes!
Easy enough to do with our 9 year old boy, but also the trail has couple of moderate hills that got our heart rate up.
Wonderful double track trail. Well groomed and maintained. Shaded by the hill in the mornings. Easy trail for the first part then a bit of a climb later with wonderful views at the top.
Great for trail running.
