HikingGreat!No shade

A great trail giving a great workout. Almost straight up. Do this in the winter as its half covered and half exposed. Great views all the way to SF skylines. Parking at Rhus Ridge is limited so come early. ALternate is start from Hidden Villa Hostel via Elephant mountain which would be 1.5mile to meet up with the regular Black Mountain trail

Great trail if the Suns out. A little rocky and steep at places so pack hiking shoes

I liked that it had lots of small to medium hills dispersed throughout... so you could get too comfortable on the flats. kept your heart rate up. I went to the left on the loop as you start, and i’m glad I did. That way, you come down the big hill at the end amd enjoy the view as a consolation prize.

As expected. Some steep hill, and doable.

HikingGreat!

Amazing trail. Warning though, there is no obvious marker where the little detour at the top ends. We pulled out our phone and found out we went well beyond and then decided to keep going. next thing you know, we ended up at north peak at elevation 1870 feet. Stunning ocean view with a beautiful sunset. The way down in dark was tricky. You definitely need a pair of solid hiking shoes with strong grip.

Not sure if it was 6 or 7 miles. Strava tracked 7 but all trails said 6. Either way kids were champions- no complaining at all!

Parking lot was full when we reached there at 11:30, nice moderate hike with gradual elevation gain (abt 250ft per mile) the first 2 miles. Trail was shaded for the most part, great for winter hikes and a decent workout!

Wear hiking shoes to take on the high incline in the beginning and rocky narrow trails at the end.

Don't hesitate to wander the many side-trails not on the designated loop this website gives. The only thing you should make sure to do is go along the coast, the rest of the loop path has no special sights you'll miss.

Middle of the day and it was almost full Lovely trail. Parking lot is very small and can be hard to park if you have a large vehicle. Came during the week in the middle of the day and it was almost full.

Great hike! Followed the advice to go backwards. It was super steep at first but leveled out. You will climb again later in the hike. Overall amazing views and lots of space on the trail. Felt the trail was a tad confusing following the map but still was a great hike.
