All uphill trail for the first half and pretty hot along the way up. Great views back to Avalon and some shade stops along the way. A nice sitting area at the top where the trails meet up. Then onto the dirt road leveling off with great views of both sides of the island and a nice cool breeze, then to the downhill road to the memorial.

Quite steep for the first two miles out of the isthmus. We didn’t make it as far as planned but enjoyed the great views anyway. Ocean breeze made the heat bearable.

Tough slough straight uphill about 2.5 miles 1500ft elevation then a hill program for 2 miles round trip. Worth it for the views though.

Awesome experience with several stops with sweeping ocean views. Careful with the bison, they like their space. Great bathrooms throughout the trail and well kept campgrounds. Stay in shark harbor when looking for campgrounds at Little harbor, it’s nice to be right on the beach with awesome ocean views.

Hiked June 2018. Freaking brutal. Awesome sights. We saw quite a few bison, which im not going to lie, was super cool, but I did make my husband go first...you know, just in case. All in all, I was 6 months post having a baby...and I was stopping to pump every 4 hours...I was in terrible shape..and I made it! If I can do it...anyone can.

Amazing... two harbor to little harbor campground with mom dad and Bella. A little muddy but PERFECT weather. Came close to a line bison half a mile into the hike... campsite is incredible. Shark harbor is a good surf spot!

Beatiful blue pacific views. Very few people for a Saturday. Recommend taking this trail from the campground and going counterclockwise so you end the hike at the memorial/garden (skip the gate fee).

Good 2 miles of steep inclines but absolutely worth it..beautiful hike. We took it slow, enjoyed the view and took plenty of brakes! It took us 3 hours 40 minutes, each way.

Nice trail, not much shade except in the morning. Beautiful views of the island and the California coast. We only did about 6 miles up the trail. Beautiful sunny day.

Lead out to the beach from main road. On the other side of sharks harbor, there is a small trail. It may be part of the same trail. It's a steep incline, but easy. Grassy. No shade. Very short. Easy to do with little kids, but don't use a stroller.

Part of this trail is different from the all trails map, they changed a section going to little harbor. Follow the actual map from the conservancy. You need to account for trying to go around bison in your way as well. It wasn’t easy, challenging at times but enjoyable. Some parts have no shade for long periods of time. If you aren’t fast, do two harbors and parsons separately. I tried to but ended up staying in two harbors... little harbor to two harbors took longer and was more challenging than expected in some ways. You could take a short cut but it was a rewarding part of the hike I’m glad I did. I’m a slow hiker.

Really strenuous stretch. We did it in 1/2 day before taking the boat back from two harbors. 1500 elevation gain in 2 miles. but great views and good exercise. highly recommend.

It is only like 8 miles from Blackjack campground to little harbor. Pretty easy, mostly downhill.

I recommend getting starting early - there is no shade and the sun can be relentless. Really fun hike with some strenuous stretches. Watch out for bison about 2/3 the way in - they can be dangerous and show up out of nowhere. Also, we did the new, shorter trail, which cut about 3 miles from the beginning. If you have the time, do the full hike!

Insane! I suggest staying at little harbor from black jack. The elevation gain from little harbor to two harbor is a killer. Day 2 of our trip. Still a toss up if day 1 was harder. Had an awesome buffalo burger at the airport in the sky.
