good hike. some poison oak on the side. half of the underpass trail was gone so you couldn't take that horseshoe part of the trail. otherwise great hike.

Parts on the way down were a bit overgrown. A bit foggy for this time of year, so not much of a view.

This is a beautiful, diverse trail. some parts are rocky while others grassy. Cute little spots to take a break.

Nice little trail hike. Recommend going counter clockwise, some areas are a little steep but otherwise worth the effort. Coming back was a breeze walking on the fire road.

It is windy and an uphill hike but the view is absolutely stunning. If you hike up towards the peak the hike gets pretty difficult and narrow close to cliffs. Tunnel View is definitely worth it though.

HikingMuddy

Bit windy at the top, great scenic views of the mountains and a little bit of ocean at the midway point. if you follow the route, it goes to the tunnel and then you need to backtrack back to the main trail. Recommend wearing good traction shoes as the mud was everywhere (in Feb) and if you want a more strenuous hike, go clockwise.

beautiful hike. we did the tunnel view loop and the hot spring. bring two dollars cash per person. easy hike with a little up hill. it is cold in February. We went early so not a lot of traffic. the ocean view and the Green hills are breath taking. also we saw a lot of pretty birds.

Very nice easy to follow trail. Very little shade-need to do early morning before direct sun gets too hot. Big open views.

Beautiful hike. Good birding. A bit strenuous going uphill if you are not in great shape but very enjoyable with great views. About 1.5-2 hours
