This trail option is a butt-kicking direct ascent to the peak (1250 ft elevation) followed by a gorgeous descent through ocean mists into the beautiful backcountry. Beautiful in event direction and lots of variety. Lots of ways to explore this park, but this is delivers the "greatest hits" (including an American flag summit) with a solid workout.

This loop was amazing, even on a cloudy day the views were awesome. Make sure to bring bug spray for the back side of the trails!!

Definitely go early if you could. Trails get busy later during a day. Valley loop part is usually nice quiet. Really pretty and satisfying trails.
