Easy trail. Bog thistle trail is only moderately steep. Lots of ridge hiking. Cool views of Mt Bishop as well as Madonna. At the top is Morro view with a bench to enjoy the view!

There were no previous comments for this hike so thought I would add one. This was a really pleasant hike although much of the trail is pretty rocky. Nice amount of elevation gain to get some good views of the valley and even out to Morro Rock. It's not as much of a loop as it is an out and back, but that's ok.
I was really was not expecting to see wildflowers with how dry it's been, but was pleasantly surprised that there were still quite a few out. Also the cool ocean breeze keeps the temperature very pleasant for hiking.
We followed the signs to Morro Rock view and found a nice bench to rest on while enjoying the view before heading back down. The whole hike was just under 4 miles.
