Honestly, one my most favorite trails. Did it on a whim and don’t regret it one bit! Amazing views all the way up to the top of the hike. Once you get high enough, you’re able to see the ocean. The higher you get, the more of the vast ocean you are able to see. Makes you want to go higher and higher. I did the hike starting at 1600 and reached the top around 1730 when the sun was beginning to set behind the ocean. The view was indescribable. There is also a bench at the top of the hike. Bring yourself a lunch and gaze out into the ocean.

Overall, hike took about 3 hours to complete. This was with plenty of stops to soak in the views. You can park right by the trail head. I did go on a weekend during the evening so it was easy to find parking.
