I had a good time, but I wish the signage was better. I ended up going to a different peak with a really steep hill so got a bit of an extra workout, but Inspiration Point itself is gorgeous. I knew it would be busy so I went early, but was still surprised by the amount of people on a Sunday morning. Beautiful spot though, especially with the recent rains filling the small stream in the canyon, so definitely worth it at least once.

Extremely average and heavily trafficked hike compared to all the amazing sights in the Los Padres. Good hike for beginners though
