Blinn Ranch trail is an unimproved road. 1.5 miles from Sapwi Camp, it becomes single-track. I encountered minimal poison oak and none of it presented a barrier to the trail. Good signage along the way, except for where the trail splits between Khus and Sapwi camps.

Gorgeous. Go as early as you can.

Hiked it as the sun was going down and was met with a beautiful view of the lake from Eagle Point view.

Very level trail for the most part. Gets better if you extend your hike further on.

Nice hike, especially when there's water in the lake.

We hiked this in January and loved it. I thought it was a pretty easy trail and we seemed to be the only ones out there. It's $10 to get into where the trailhead is.

Loved this hike! Just started getting back into hiking as a hobby. The loop took me 2.5 hours. I started at 9:30am and was done by 12pm. Perfect morning hike! I took my time too stopping pretty frequently to take pictures of the scenery and for water breaks. You could totally complete the entire loop in way less time. Plenty other area to explore off this hike too. Next time I'll check out Little or Big Falls. Can't wait! I went on a Monday morning and had the trail all to myself. Beautiful day too. I'd recommend taking a light jacket for when you get higher on the trail. Temperature dropped a bit and wind picked up. Great hike!

Okay I have to admit, after hiking in the eastern Sierras for the past ten years, I thought there were few trails along the Central Coast that could kick my butt. I found one. This is a great trail to get the heart pumping, enjoying the landscape, see wildflowers and enjoy the Santa Lucia Wilderness.

This is an excellent trail, but it's currently CLOSED to public entry due to the Cuesta Fire. It doesn't appear that the trail itself has burned, but the Closure Order is in effect through October 1, 2015. Assuming another fire doesn't start between now and then, the closure will probably be lifted at that time, as the Cuesta Fire is currently 90% contained and well to the west of the trail. See Closure Order below:
