Amazing view of the beach and cute art works when you enter the tunnel at the beginning of trail. Prepare yourself for a lot of inclines. Definitely worth the hike, though!

Nice hike. Clean path. Take a swim at the beach after your hike.
Will do it again.

7/3/17. Did Moro Canyon to East cut across to Moro Ridge. Trail starts low and slow. Cut across provides all elevation. WOW at top. Worth the hike! 5 miles. Great trail. Can do it in sneakers.

Will be back to hike this trail again. There were a lot of mountain bikers on the trail also. The view and the ocean breeze from the trail was amazing

Beautiful view of Laguna Coast. Inland trail views are expansive and well worth the effort.
