This is a nice day hike to do from Del Norte Camp. It provides good views of both the northern and southern side of Santa Cruz Island. Note: There is no fresh water along the route.

We didn’t do the full loop. Used this as a guide to Chinese Harbor from Del Norte Campground and back. We stayed two nights, so this was a perfect hike for our second day. We had the trail entirely to ourselves which made for a really peaceful hike. Only people we came across were some surfers on the beach that were staying on a boat in the harbor. Stayed on the rocky beach for a while and then headed back. Trail was super lush and green in January. Easy hike for the most part, just a little steep initially getting back up from the harbor.

This is a nice hike to Chinese Harbor from Del Norte Camp. The Loop provides great views of both the northern and southern coast as well as a chance to walk through some oak groves on the return to Del Norte Camp. This will also take you down to Chinese Harbor where there is a stone beach and fantastic views along the way. There is no fresh water available.
