Runner Notes

This trail has become one of the more popular options in the park for trail runners as it has a manageable grade compared to some of the other steeper singletracks.

Description

The steepest part of this trail is over in the first two-thirds of a mile (from the top). From there, this trail descends toward the coastline at a nice grade with access to a number of fun singletracks to explore.

This is a popular route because of its access to other trails and views out toward the ocean. Either done on its own as an out-and-back or added into a loop like the Crystal Cove Loop, this is a must for anyone coming to Crystal Cove State Park.
