Trailhead starts all the way at the back of Circle V Ranch Camp (main path to the left. You'll pass directly by the pool, bathrooms, and cabins). The first 2 miles is great. The rest of the Hike is a bit precarious - loose dirt and rocks along a narrow footpath up the mountain. Recent wildfires have cleared the branches/leaves so Lake Cachuma is visible through the trees as soon as you start gaining elevation.

love this hike. beautiful

Great hike. Make sure to start early to beat the heat & bring lots of water as temp gets very hot in the summertime (around 95+ degrees) in the summertime. We saw lots of wildlife- dear, garter snakes, lots of lizards and birds.

This was a kick butt hike! It definitely has beautiful views though. We wish we could have made it to the top to see the whole 360 view but we would have needed to bring more water and snacks for sure. Next time! :)

A nice workout up the hill and down. Great views along the way. I went on May 16 in the late morning and had a brief encounter (for a few seconds before it bolted into the brush) with a young mountain lion (not kidding). Highly recommend this hike; it is a bit of work on the way up.
