This trail is quite a climb! Lists of roots and rocks. I chose to run the trail and loved the challenge in climbing. When you get to the top of the first climb, the open views of the ocean are amazing. The cool ocean breeze felt great. The descent worked my quads and I got a great sweat. Lots of hikers who were super friendly. I could tell it was a tough climb for most. Make sure to wear good shoes and bring food and water! Enjoy the views!

Loved the trail portions of this hike, except the entire middle 7-8 miles we had to walk on the beach and highway 101. Very muddy during spring.

Hiked this in December. The weather was clear and cold. Not freezing, but with the breezes at night it was very cold.
