Steeply ascending ridge trail with almost constant full-sun exposure, so plan accordingly on hot days. Nice vistas of Salinas Valley from upper elevations. Overall, a very good workout.

I was a bit unsure at first. I saw that the entrance to Toro park requires $8 per vehicle but you can park outside the gate for free and take a little extra walk. The park gets full but the trails were practically empty. This specific trail was a constant up then a long down. The views were beautiful and the trail was peaceful and a good workout. If I were to repeat a trail I'd definitely do this one again.

Difficult trail even for in shape 50+ year old marathoners!
