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.

BEST PLACE TO SEE A CALIFORNIA CONDOR! You gotta hike to the top but they are there. April is a great time to go. Been twice. Beautiful in the Chumash wildness, simply breathtaking. I would go there many more times if I still lived in California. One of my favorite places to Backpack. Quiet and peaceful.
