Hiked the trail in early May with my dog. He was *covered* in ticks (about 30 of them). Found a couple of them on myself also. I didn't see any signs warning about ticks. And some areas were completely overgrown with unavoidable thorny brush. It was painful.

I would not suggest this trail. Definitely don't take your dog here.

Rather crowded but mostly cows not really in a hurry to clear the trail. Very nice run up and down under the fog. If you park at the county park please note that it only opens at 8:00 and that line can be long.

A nice steady climb. Not that many people. Hang gliders, wild turkeys, great views. It was a great day! Ill go back to climb up to monument peak.

Great trail with diverse landscapes. It was a cloudy day so I couldn't enjoy the view of the bay, but the last part of the trail was above the cloud ceiling (approx. 2100 ft).
Take a few extra steps at the top to climb Monument Peak, the view of the hills on the other side is worth it.

Payment of $6 dollars due on entering the park but it's worth it. We did the Agua Caliente Trail and really enjoyed it. Great for beginners and dogs too. Views of the bay are amazing on a clear day. Light foot traffic and we had cell coverage the whole time which is good to have in case of an emergency. Watching the people paragliding was a bonus.
