I backpacked this trail with family early in 2018. The trail was gone, fallen into disuse after the 2017 el nino, and the 2016 soberanes fire. despite GPS unit and maps, trail was far less than a deer trail, and dozens of fallen trees, brush, etc made it nearly impossible to follow. it may be in better shape by now, but I doubt it. fyi I live in big sur, and am used to some bushwhacking, but this was extreme...

This loop is not open, even more, it does not even exist yet. Looks like they have a future plan to finish this trail, but currently there is no loop trail open up on the hill. It is a great hike and beautiful views on the ridge, but then you must turn around and head down the same way. Someone needs to correct the map as it shows trails that do not exist yet. REMEMBER: PERMIT REQUIRED.

You can walk the whole thing in less than an hour. If the surf isn't high it's nice to hang out in the small beaches. It's more a day at the beach than a hike.

Trails are well maintained. Some hills but not too bad. Nice views.

a long dirt road before you get to the turn off to the trail to little sur camp the trail had been recently cleared so it made the hike much easier no down falls and the usual ticks but I spray my cloths so I don't have that problem. Very pretty and this time of year less hikers so very peaceful..
