Just gorgeous

Awesome training ascent with the best sunset views! Not as crowded as Chumash Trail!

Great hike. I didn't go all the way because I wanted to make it back to my car before my parking ticket expired. But great spots to over look the ocean.

Kiana is so right about the need for insect repellent and long pants. Lots of people on the narrow trail (hiked Saturday).

nice hike! love the beach views all the way. recommendations: long pants due to overgrowth and bug spray for all the mosquitos that are in the parking area.

Hiked another couple miles (to the left when the trail forks) to a bit past the water towers. Great hike during the summer with amazing views!

Love this trail. Have hiked it several times. Today was the most overgrown I have ever seen it. Still in really good condition. Still has some pretty yellow flowers. Can't beat the views.

good hike with a nice view! some people might prefer to wear some pants along the trail since there is decent knee high over growth that can get irritating
