The views were great. The hike was nice at the beginning of the hike we went down and that was nice but hard on our way back especially because there was no shade and I was tired. I would definitely do this hike again. The park at the top is beautiful.

Free parking on Alta Laguna. Amazing ocean views and mountain views. This is a great place to watch the sunrise. There are always a lot of people on this trail but it never feels crowded. If you branch off to Car Wreck trail beware: its super steep and bikers fly down it. Hike also known as Too of the World.
