Beautiful little trail that is rather easy, but very scenic. It is a bit overgrown in places and the trail can be narrow, so trekking poles are handy. The Alamo Pintado creek at the bottom still has some water flow, but the area was covered with ladybugs.

Took the trail on a nice, just-right-for-hiking weather. The view of the valley below was magnificent and the breeze on the first half of the trail was encouraging. The winding path was decent and safe to trek though there were areas that needed bushwhacking. Suffice to say, our dog made the round-trip hike. Watch out for stickers though. Both sides of my hiking pants were covered with stickers but seeing the wild flowers, sage and lavender are worth it!

Beautiful windy road from Los Olivos to trailhead. Spectacular views but we ventured on a day when heavy fog was still clinging to the mountain. The trail was narrow but decent. We turned back about half way because the trail was a bit more treacherous and wet and we didn't have hiking boots with us. Many beautiful wild flowers!
