hard hike!! We took the South boundry trail straight uphill. it was difficult and there was no shade until you are about two thirds of the way up. but...Beautiful! Redwood forest about a mile from the top, stunning. the panoramic trail coming down is beautiful, but it zigzags all over. a trench has been dug in tje trail which made hiking precarious. i guess for rain water, but it is difficult to navigate. Defintely a great hike, bring a stick, a friend, and enough water. ran acrossed a mountain lion chasing two deer on the way back to the car.

Group and I went the whole 8 mile or so loop. The two Beaches were definitely the highlights of this hike. Going from Beaches back to the parking lot using the loop was a good workout. We used the hidden trail back.... I don't recommend that part! Otherwise, this was my most memorable hike yet.
