Very nice trail with a lot of variety. This is the 4th section of the coast trail that I've done and plan to backpack through many of them. There is a backpacker camp in the middle of this trail that looks pretty good. The trail goes uphill for the first 1/2 hr before leveling out a little. The last 1/3 before you turn around is nice redwoods but not really large trees. Some nice ocean views on the top. Definitely a trail I'll do again and recommend even though the lower part isn't recommended on other sites. Came across 2 small groups of elk and plenty of bear and lion scat so make plenty of noise if you do this one... The elevation gain is actually 2600' but I hand drew part of the map.
