Went here for my first backpacking experience. Loved it. Paid $10 for parking and $7 for the overnight stay at the parking lot machine, then hiked the mile up to the trail camp. There are about 8 spots, as well as 2 sinks and toilets which are clean as well. Half of the camping spots are a bit shaded, while the others are in sunlight most of the day. I went on a Tuesday night and there were many spots available. The hiking here is also amazing, especially the hike from Trippet Ranch to the trail camp, and then onward to Eagle Rock, where the views up top are amazing. The west side of the trail loop is rather ‘primitive’, which I love. On the other side of the loop is a fire road, with more foot traffic, and its more maintained. Many friendly hikers on the trails all around. I will definitely be back…

Amazing hike. The entire trail took about 2.5 hours with a few stops along the way. One half of the trail had wide cleared out pathways. The other half was rustic and very narrow, with lots of flora all around. The views are amazing, and parking was easy to find on the street. There were also tons of paid parking spots available for $10. Hardly anyone on the trail also, but I did go on a weekday.

This a a great trail. The views from eagle rock are spectacular. The ocean and The Valley - panoramic view. Went up through Musch trail and there are still lots of wildflowers and birds plus there is shade in parts going up. Came down the fire road which is wide. Luckily it was a bit overcast probably gets quite hot with full sun.
Do recommend this hike
