More like a 5.2 mile loop with 2,000 ft elevation gain if you start at the Lightning trailhead. Lots of pretty pines and red woods on the portion leading up to the loop. Going right at the split is mostly shaded to the top. On our way back down we were thankful to have hiked up on the right and down in the sun.

Loved being able to have our pup run around beside us. Only bumped into 1 other couple the whole trail.

Great view at the top of the mountain rage and ocean!

Took Kings Peak Road (dirt road) to get to the trail head. Super fun 1-lane dirt trail. Needed to use 4-wheel drive in a couple areas due to it being pretty sandy and washed out.
