A beautiful rolling trail with views of the ocean most of the way.

Description

Start at the intersection with Bolinas Ridge trail. For the most part, this trail parallels Ridgecrest Boulevard on the south side. Before long the forest will open up and you'll have views of the ocean on your right. The trail winds constantly throughout. You'll reach a parking lot and it appears the trail ends here.

However, continue on the road for a short 100 meters and watch for the trail to continue on your right. Back on the trail you'll continue to wind your way to the intersection with Willow Camp Fire Rd. Take a quick right and then left to continue on this trail. Before long the trail will start to deviate from following the road as the road make a turn east. This trail will continue south until it intersects with the Matt Davis Trail.
