One word- MOSQUITOS.
Of the large and biting variety. I am sure the hike would have been much more pleasant had we not been feasted upon heavily for 10 miles.
Bug Spray it up.

Awesome moderate hike with spectacular ocean views. Lots of bikers heading fast around corners. We started off at the trail-head heading counter-clockwise, easier hike up the hill, it seems. We veered off the overlook trail and went down to the shore via more winding backbone, but it was worth the extra 2 miles. Walked along the PCH back to the parking lot. Lots of green plants this time of year. Weather was perfect, cloudy 65 degrees. Got cold quickly around 6pm. Overall, a great day spent hiking.

Hiked here with our club. The hills had wonderful flora and the scenery was great throughout our hike.
