great hike! very, very low traffic. no views of the ocean, save for at the top of the mountain (but cool view of mountains!)

strongly suggest doing this hike the opposite way of how it's mapped here, i.e. ascend on the east side of the route and descend on the west - the eastern side is a lot more technical, footing-wise, than the west side and this was annoying during our descent - I personally would prefer the unsure footing to be on my ascent and the smoother path on the descent
