I've hiked this trail a couple times and the sights are amazing. Definitely prefer hiking it in the spring because it is extremely lush and has TONS of wildflowers! It is more dry and dead in the fall.

If you take the trail to Jameson Lake and back it'll run you a solid 20 miles. Worth the hike to divide road, amazing views and a good feel of what the back country offers.

A nice trail. Heavy traffic. Joggers, walkers, bikers, dogs on and off leashes. Some of the tar is still fresh. Avoid stepping in it or you may have a gooey mess on the bottom of your shoes. Also, at one point the trail crosses the RR tracks. Always listen for train whistles. Great views of the ocean. Some sections of the beach are closed due to harbor seal sancuaries.
