My wife and I have done this trail before but this time we came back to finish the 5 oaks trail that her friend tapped out on last time. Well it was under construction so wasn’t able to complete it. So we’re Over this trail!!! Lol the car wreck trail was the highlight of the day but the bugs were out so bad on this day. Bring big spray!! Lots of it.

Pretty challenging but nothing spectacularly difficult. Incline lasts for about a mile and then it's pretty smooth sailing. Plenty of people bunnies pheasants and beetles to make a fun time :) good rocks to sit and enjoy views of ocean

Great trail. Had been a while since I hiked and decided to go a difficult route, a bit more difficult then I anticipated but nonetheless it was a nice view and loved I had several route options.

Great and strenuous hike with beautiful view of the ocean. I would definitely recommend!

Couldn’t have asked for a better day. Make sure to get here early because parking is very limited in the neighborhood down below. This hike is straight up for 2 miles but totally worth the amazing views.

Very challenging, nice though. Extended my trip to 5 mi over to west ridge

Not too bad of a hike! Make sure to bring water. It’s better to park your car at the park next to the trailhead. For me, it was better to can hike down and then back up. Regarding the directions, it’s better to just find Top of the World on google maps.

If you are looking for a hike to challenge this is for you! Very steep but such a great workout. Just take your time and pace yourself. And the beautiful ocean views are worth it!

Amazing views of the ocean, the city, and nature.

Amazing trail
