Nice trail. Lots of roots that tried to trip me all day. View from the top is incredible. More traffic than I was expecting, but folks were great and mindful of fellow hikers and Mother Earth. I saw one piece of a candy wrapper on the ground and of course picked it up. Nice to see such a clean trail. Make sure to go on a clear day.

Completed on 8/26 on a hot sunny day
A lot of overgrowth on the first mile starting from North Trailhead. Moderately steep climb for most of the trail up to the summit. A lot of roots and loose dirt on trail but still safe. You can scramble up the peak near the end or take a longer less steep trail around to the top. Great views and one of the best coast trails I've been on. The hike down to the South Trailhead was quick. less overgrown, and less exposed to sun. I took the highway from South Trailhead to North Trailhead. There is a pedestrian walkway for most of the walk but a section with no walkway that can be somewhat sketchy since your so close to the road.
