Only giving it one star because it’s closed. Los Padres says it’s open but when we got there it was closed.

Awesome drive up hill. Very narrow trail when you're up on the hill. Nice view once up top. Had to turn back half way because I was running low on gas. Will need to go back to complete it

very easy trail. well mantained. there is only one difficult section called the stair steps, but it has a bypass. very tight trail towards the end, so expect scratches. steep rocky hill climbs with loose dirt. did it easily in my samurai with 3" lift on 31s with open diffs. i included a link to my youtube video going down the stairsteps
