Lovely at dawn. The winter rains have caused wildflowers to grow over the trail in spots; there are also some gnat swarms near the oil wells. But these are minor inconveniences. Great dirt to run on!

This trail is nice & open with plenty of opportunities for photos. Lots of bird wildlife to observe. I didn't give myself enough to complete the whole route, but I'll be back soon.
Make sure to bring a jacket, the breeze right off the beach can chill.
