“A nice loop from Oak Grove Trail along coastal bluffs and through the woods of Douglas Family Preserve.”— John McKinney
This length of the run along the cliffs offers amazing coastal views. You'll eventually reach a junction - going right on the short Douglas Spur Trail will take you to Medcliff Road. Taking a left will bring you north and then east to complete a loop of Douglas Family Preserve.
