“A short but awesome steep trail with the chance to see rare Torrey Pines and views of Bechers Bay.”— Meg Jakubowski
After pausing to admire the pines, continue up until you reach the 'top'. You'll work your way the ridge along with the grove to your right and fields to your left. Neat views of a box canyon along with Torrey Pine Road can be had from this vantage point, but the two trails do not officially connect.
The singletrack trail continues on through mixed manzanita and oak groves. Look for the manzanita leaf gall evidenced by swollen red leaf edges. Once through the grove, you'll descend steeply on a few switchbacks. Look for wildflowers along the way. At the bottom, you rejoin the Coastal Road once again.
