Very pleasant and scenic drive throughout the Four Peaks mountain range. Light traffic and easy graded dirt road for the most part. Saw one car going by but wouldn't recommend the trail for any low clearance vehicle due to some washed out and rutted in places. Will come back for sure as it was worth the view!

Awful! 3 break ins during daylight and one couple was only away for 30 mins! We ended up leaving after seeing the damage people were doing! Didn’t feel safe at all! The drive made us feel like we were in a 3rd world country is was so gross and run down!

Good off road Trail. The view from the peak is good on a clear day. Some hikers every now and then but mostly desolate. Needed 4wheel drive on the steep uphills because of traction but that was the only places.

I must say that hiking this trail in the snow proved to be very difficult, even with micro spikes. My wife and I made it all the way to the lake, but that was after a mile of knee deep snow. Needless to say, this hike is awesome. spectacular views and pretty rugged. I would like to hike it in the summer without the snow!

I have a previous review but I went back and redid the trail. I'd say I was probably angry this wasn't rated easy, and I'm not sure if i did the whole thing last time. I have a full video up if you'd like to take a look:

Missouri Gulch kind of stinks in the beginning because I believe its a powerline service road. eventually you get away from the wires and it starts getting a little rutty and flexy. This is a pretty easy trail but I gave it a moderate because there is a section where half of the trail has washed down the mountain. It seems like it is pretty solid but I was nervous. The other problem is to get around it you have to go up a slope that's trying to tip you down the hill thats half missing. If you'd like to see a video of the run I have one up at:

Very hot and rocky hike. Landscape is a study in contrasts - wind swept grassy plain meets desert-like trails meets rugged ocean coast. Beach is at the bottom of a steep cliff but there are paths to help you down and up. Sand is truly green. Amazing view.

Super awesome. Super easy too (when dry). Plenty of cyclists do this. Saw a honda civic driving it, although i could hear their indercarriage neing hit by 3” rocks.

The road is open to bicycles and hikers per Andrew molera state beach ranger January 2018.

This is the old coast road and it is open to bicycles and hikers . There are locked gates-you can go around them. The road itself is not private property, but the surrounding land is-so stay on the road. Information given to me by molera state beach ranger January 2018.

STEEP.
But worth it! My legs killed by the end of this one! No water on the trail, make sure to bring plenty.

Great hike! Parked at Mescal trailhead and took mescal and Chuckwagon trails to Devil's Bridge trail. Wonderful views and much better than walking the dirt road the 4x4s and Atvs can go on. Last part of trail is a series of rock steps. Steep but doable, perhaps with a rest or two for us not so young and fit. Payoff is terrific. Wonderful sandstone arch and great views. Trade cameras with others to get a pic on the arch if so desired. We went midweek January day,
Mid day / early afternoon. Only about 10 people at the arch at any one time, better than weekend crowds we'd heard about.

Took a 2014 sierra with a 6" lift and 35" tires. Lots of different trails to take throwout. Most of the trails are easy, a couple a little more challenging. I ended following the river bottom for a wile and came across a couple really narrow areas but was able to get throw most of them. Eventually there was one i could not get throw cause of really dense bushes and had to turn around. WOULD NOT go too deep into the back trails if your in one vehicle, when i was there i maybe cross one vehicle in a 3 hour period...

I have been to this trail for the past two weekends and its so much fun. I follow the river north, most of it is sand and NO difficult parts to get throw except towards the end. I drive a 6" lifted full size truck with 4x4. For the most part i drive in 2WD no problems, only a couple of times i had to use my 4WD. Towards the end of the accessible trail there is a little stream and a couple puddles that are fun to go throw, just caution on the last one cause it is a good 12"+ deep...

Great trail! More like following a road up to the little fish sign put up to point out the arch. Scramble at the end, follow a clear ridge, beautiful view of a arch

Nice hike with the dog! On a Sunday only saw 2 other people the whole time. A bit muddy in parts but not bad. Nice mix of scenery and terrain.

Worth it
