Beautiful. Eucalyptus grove, mountains and a peek at the ocean. Spring is the perfect time for this trail

I chose this trail because of the geocaching it had available. I hiked the entire trail. I parked across road from trail head near the turn off for Sand Spit. When I came out other end I then took a trail on west side of road through the dunes to get back to my car. Was a great hike and I found lots of geocaches and had a great workout! A perfect day.

Lovely trail! Not the best marked and the app has you park across the street from the start of the trail. It is mostly sand trails but the terrain is easily walkable with only a short incline mostly at the start of the trail. There is lots of poison oak and I'd recommend long pants if you are super sensitive to it as it was unavoidable at times.

Hiked this trail all alone today. Breathtaking views and if you geocache, like I do, there are 5 caches along this trail. I thought I'd completed the whole trail but from looking at this map, I only did the portion to the east of Pecho Road. Too bad they don't allow dogs.... I'd wished I could have taken my dog.
