Part of Toro Canyon Park, the trail starts down in the canyon and climbs to the ridge. At the top, take in the view of Carpinteria and the ocean from a stone bench. The lower section is often overgrown and many start hiking at the saddle where it hits the road again.

The area is beautiful but if your looking for a heart thumping hike this is not it. The hike is super short even for a beginner. I wouldn't waste my time driving out to do this hike, look for another hike.

lost the trail completely after the bench. continued with our best guest, all trails map said we were on track, but the plants were so overgrown that the trail was completely invisible. ultimately turned back, miles before reaching the end of the trail as indicated on this map.
