This is a moderate trail that goes on a gentle incline mostly for 2 mi, then downhill switchbacks for 1.7 mi (starting from nature trail entrance). Then it meets up with Weiler Ranch Rd trail and it's a flat .75 mi or so back. There is a section of lush eucalyptus forest that's pretty cool. I like it because on a weekday, you'll rarely run into anyone. I've hiked this after work many times and haven't passed a single soul. So if you like solitude you'll get it (less so on weekends).

I enjoyed this route clockwise even though I intended to go counter based on others comments. It was more crowded than I had hoped/expected based on others reviewers...but it was a sunny Sunday midday and pleasant anyway. I would definitely do this again for another short two hour hike.

Nice trail, pretty good workout but definitely not hard. Views are just okay hence the 3 star rating.

Dirt trail through a canyon to the summit looking out over Linda Mar Blvd to the ocean. It meets the Montara Mountain trail and winds down with switch backs through a forested area. The views are beautiful, starting with the quiet canyon, then from the summit you see the valley, and the ocean. There are benches a long the way to sit and take in the scenery. Saw lots of rabbits, lizards, and birds. Only 1 or 2 other hikers, but that was it. The elevation is 1646, not 646. I think they missed a "1" Took us about 1.5 hours with stops along the way. Great trail!

This trail is often foggy at the top. Check the weather (look out to the ocean for incoming fog) before starting!
