One of my favorite local hikes. Beautiful scenery and more views than a Drake album. Took this all the way to Sheep Camp campground and boy was it a treat. Definitely recommend.

We're not experienced hikers at all and this trail was a breeze! My 4 year old and 10 year old kids loved it. Lots to see and plenty of shade.

Beautiful spot with historical Native American (Chumash) wilderness views. Watch out for big rocks, trunks, and roots on the path! Bring comfortable hiking shoes. I went yesterday 5/24. Weather is always changing, but the temperature was tolerable this day, especially in the shade. And there is an ample amount of shade throughout the wood. Will be back.
