HikingGreat!RockyScramble

First bit is a typical CA fire road hike: exposed, sunny, fenced-in, but also green and blooming this time of year. Second part is a boulder scramble up a nearly dry creek bed—it makes the trail a little tough to find on the way up; we logged 8.5 miles with someone’s device. Very crowded on the weekend. Waterfall was still trickling a few days ago. Poison oak is rampant.

Pretty easy trail in a stock Jeep. It is very crowded though - cars, motorcycles, bikes, and hikers. Can be difficult to pull over for passing since the trail is narrow. But was definitely manageable and the views were great.

Nice easy trail, lots of wildflowers, birdsong, shaded for a good part of the way. Not too many people on the trail, though it is shared by hikers and mountain bikers, it's wide enough most of the way for them to pass easily.

Easy hike that's mostly flat yet lovely the whole way. The red rocks at the end provide a pleasant view to conclude the hike.

Gorgeous walk along the beach and the bluff. This is one of the most scenic parts of the So Cal coastline.

Hiking

Pretty great day hike with some fantastic views of the coast throughout. The trail is pretty heavily trafficked at the north and south entrance of the park but once you get hiking it clears up pretty nicely. There are mountain bikers throughout so watch out for them, especially around missing link (theres always a few that love to bomb that trail).

Very easy, partly shaded throughout the trail, lots of (bloody) history regarding this area. To get to the waterfall, scrambling is involved the farther you go back.

Hiking

This was a fairly easy hike because the elevation gain was gradual most of the way through the trail. The last half a mile to the peak is challenging, where a lot of elevation gain comes into play. I’d recommend hiking sticks. One thing to note, you’ll need a dog with medium to high drive to be able to complete this hike. Unfortunately one of our dogs wasn’t able to make the last half mile to the peak, and had to take multiple breaks on the way back to the trail head because he was so tuckered out. 1 of 6 completed for the #sixpackofpeaks!

The real deal. It was a great trail. I would say medium level of you choose to take the hills. there is the option to take the trail with the flat areas only
