A moderately difficult hike through grasslands, rolling hills sporting a summer dry grass cover, occasional wildflowers through a MROSD maintained preserve.

This trail was awesome to hit in the morning before work! You get a solid hike in but it doesn't take very long to complete and is not challenging. Also the trail was mostly shaded which was a big plus. There is an amazing opening where you can look out over the beautiful hills to the ocean which is about halfway.

I really enjoyed this trail- might be one of my favorites in the area. I also went clockwise down Harkins Ridge and the up Whittmore Gulch for a nice 7 miler. Perfect amount of shade, sun, greenery and wildlife. Love it.

Great hike in a great area, but the data in distance and lis elevation gained is incorrect.

If you look at the elevation profile, you will see it is a mirror image, meaning that one would have to do the loop shown twice to cover the distance and elevation gain

So it's really a 7 mile hike with 1800 feet of elevation gained. I posted data from a few gps sources to illustrate

Great trail, mix of shade and direct sun. Not very crowded when I went on a sunny Friday afternoon (didn't see anyone on the trail, but did see a couple cars in the parking lot). Windy drive up to the parking lot, but roads were well-paved and well-trafficked.
