The trail is full of sun & no shade! The trail is full of loose rocks so you need shoes that can grip well! There's a picnic table at the top too! It was absolutely beautiful.

Moderate hike, nice landscape, maintained paths. Just keep your eyes open for bikes. Some days there are a lot and others only a few. No dogs allowed is the only down side.

This is a great path for hikers only. No bikes. It is a 4 mile hike, easy to moderately strenuous. Altitude of 1300+ feet. If you don't want to go to the top, you can hike to the halfway point...the mid-hump. The wildflowers are nice...More

Fantastic view and nice easy trail. Parking can be tough and no dogs allowed, not even on a leash.can combine with a nice walk along the cliffs. Can be pretty crowded in the summer months. Better in winter.

I enjoy this hike because of the views, but all the shale and loose rock can make my feet sore if I don't have on my good hiking shoes. Once you're at the top you will have gorgeous views of the ocean on one side,...More
