Starting to get hot so the earlier you go the better. Thankfully a little of the June Gloom kept it on the cooler side. I took the little short cut (Dead Cow Trail) and thought it gave better views than the other part of the Palo Comado Trail.

A fun loop with great views.
Very light foot traffic but mountain bike trail at the higher elevations and along Cheesboro section.
Best avoided on weekends as the bike traffic is much heavier.
