    The scenery was beautiful. The only problem was the map vs trail markers - not well done. Also, several of the bridges on the trail are out, so be prepared to get your feet wet. I would still recommend this hike.

    This was a very nice hike! We had emerged from the fog-filled bay to the sunny SC mountains for a nice meandering hike in Castle Rock. The first ~6 miles were very mellow, not a lot of incline/decline with soft needly ground cover. The vistas were breathtaking!

    The "sunny south-facing slope" was pretty toasty, but followed quickly by more shade.

    The two negatives: the gunshots ringing out from the gun club up HWY 35 (audible at the beginning and towards the end)and the time spent walking just below HWY 9 (for about 1/2 hour to an hour at the beginning).
