The ascent was rough for me. But worth the view!!

I accessed Upper Fisherman's Trail from the Coastal Trail at the top of Conzelman Road. There are 296 steps down to the road where you access the rest of the trail to the beach. Some great views and the steps are a quick workout. The trail map showing 0.5mi is not quite right as the rest of the trail to the top is not included. Great trail, doesn't take much time, but good to be in shape for the ascent!
