this was a tough incline....but worth it!

A couple of really good grades. I’d say a cockwise loop seems best and look on satellite view for trails adjacent to Cougar Ridge on the way down, especially near the paved portion of Cougar.

Steep hills and gorgeous scenery. Overall a great workout!

Steeply ascending ridge trail with almost constant full-sun exposure, so plan accordingly on hot days. Nice vistas of Salinas Valley from upper elevations. Overall, a very good workout.

I was a bit unsure at first. I saw that the entrance to Toro park requires $8 per vehicle but you can park outside the gate for free and take a little extra walk. The park gets full but the trails were practically empty. This specific trail was a constant up then a long down. The views were beautiful and the trail was peaceful and a good workout. If I were to repeat a trail I'd definitely do this one again.

Difficult trail even for in shape 50+ year old marathoners!

One of our favorite trails. Outbound is mostly continuously uphill at moderate grade and reverse on return. At the apex of the climb one is rewarded with panoramic views northward looking out at Monterey Bay. Encounters with deer are common, and maybe a bobcat sighting, if you're lucky. Part of the trail traverses pasture land, and the cows may be grazing.
