This is a great loop to follow that takes you up to the incredible rattlesnake trail with amazing views. This is loaded with mountain bikers and the insects are decently bad if you stop moving. However it is a great hike some of the inclines are pretty steep so it's definitely a moderate difficulty.

Did this trail Mother's Day a few years ago. No shade and I heard snakes the entire time. So I ran the majority of the distance down the actual trail.

It was a very hot day, so the weather made this hike very difficult, but at the same time, Really fun! It pushed me to my limits in terms of the steep uphill challenges. This is a good hike if you want to take your time, see some beautiful views and really just be with nature for a couple hours. We discovered the little cave and that was so nice to just relax in, in the middle of our hike. Remember to bring lots of water. I'd do this trail again! I'd have to say, the BEST PART is that it's only STEPS away from the beach and you can just take your hiking shoes off, throw your flip flops on and in 2 minutes your feet are in the sand and it's such a relaxing way to end the day!

We loved this trail! Some fire roads, single track, a cave, beautiful views with the ocean breeze!! We went down to the beach to cool our feet after the hike!!
