This is a HARD hike. We followed the track and went counter clockwise and it didn't disappoint. Pretty consistent climb for a solid 8 miles or so. Make sure you bring plenty of water and prepare for exposed trails as most of the ridge doesn't offer shade. We made a wrong turn somehow where the trail meets the creek but fortunately found the trail eventually. This is a good hike but very strenuous, make sure you're fully prepared for it!

Just want to say there are no dogs allowed here. Tried to take mine this morning and was told no by the ranger. Beautiful area though, so I'll have to go back.

This is a bit challenge trail in one day. And the loop mark red line is exactly right. I just walked throng this trail yesterday. Its took me 9 hours. Great trail. I like it

Pretty good hike! Difficult yet not to bad for someone who can handle and narrow path that at times can be slippery, but not too bad during the summer time. Watch for poison oak!

The red-line trail loop shown on this map is dead wrong. Shown here is the Westridge-Henry Creek loop off of Skyline-to-the-Sea trail. McCrary Ridge is the first junction to the right (east), starting up Skyline-to-the Sea from Waddell Beach. You can loop back to Skyline via Howard King trail if you like or just go up and back down McCrary Ridge.
I love the trail sign at the bottom of McCrary Ridge Trail: "very steep, not for hikers. Horses only."
Giddy-up! It's a killer climb with beautiful views of the ocean breaking against the beach in the distance. Take plenty of water and sunscreen.. It breaks out of the redwoods partway up and continues across open chaparral to the top.
