Nice hike. Loved it. The first half mile has this beautiful eucalyptus trees. Early morning fog + the fragrance of eucalyptus was refreshing. It’s a steady climb but I wouldn’t classify it as hard.

Trail was clear and very well marked. Not too steep. Incredible vistas of the pacific and the city of SF. Perfect morning or afternoon hike. Completed in 2:30.

Nice trail, pretty good workout but definitely not hard. Views are just okay hence the 3 star rating.

This trail is often foggy at the top. Check the weather (look out to the ocean for incoming fog) before starting!
