Stared from Nadelos Campground off of Chamise Mountain road. Nice hike up to the lost coast trail several blow downs, constant up but not to steep. After the lookout, I took the westward loop past “Nicks Camp”. The loop gives you the ocean views you won’t get from the LCT but keep in mind, you drop back down to near starting elevation and must climb back up the top of Chamise. Running water about half way through the loop (Oct 31st)
Coastal pines mixed in with some stressed Manzanita on the west side, big tall oaks and firs blocking out the under brush on the east side.
Diverse and pretty.
