Starting Point

The trail begins along an ancient mossy road that gradually rises in height. Turn left at the T-intersection. After 5 minutes, look for a cairn on the right that marks the beginning of a rib boned track through the low underbrush forest. The route will gradually ascend until ending with a brief hard climb up and over a ridge. A difficult struggle up through exposed limestone cliffs stumped ancient trees, and Manzanita shrubs leads from there. The finest vantage position is directly below the somewhat flat plateau, a little lower than the path height. Beautiful views of the Coastal Mountains.
