This particular route is the most commonly hiked trail at this trailhead (the others are the Lemon Grove Loop and the off shoot trail up to the "M"). Steep and rocky in some sections, particularly at the end of rainy season as the fire road portions of the trail sustain erosion and seems to be irregularly graded. Fantastic views of the valley and on a clear day, you can see to Morro Bay. Not a lot of shade, so best times to hike are before 10 am and after 4:00 PM (summer). The park closes at dusk, so in the fall and winter, set out by 3:30 PM at the latest as there is a pretty steep climb/descent at the bottom third of the trail that is tricky to negotiate as the sun is setting.

Decent hike!
