This is a fun trail. There are tons of elk herds to view and turkey vultures soaring all around. Lots of other birds to view too. The ocean and Tomales Bay are constantly in sight. Bring a lunch and plenty of water since you are out in the open and there is lots of wind. Even though it is rolling hills, it takes longer to hike than you would think. I guess it is all the interesting sights to stop and look at along the way.
