The transition from forested ridge to open coast is the highlight of this trip. You follow the narrow Greenpicker Trail up the ridge to reach high littoral bluffs. Exhilarating views accompany your descent to the coast through fragrant coastal scrub and spring-blooming ceanothus and iris. You can chose between two return routes.

I've ridden my horse on these trails many times from 5 Brooks staging area. Great trailer parking, water trough, tie rails and picnic benchs! Take Stewart trail to Greenpicker, one of my favorite trails! Not too steep and horses seem to enjoy it also. Watch for roots on trail in a couple spots. Reconnect with Stewart at Fir Top. (Do not take Greenpicker down to Glen Trail, very steep and eroded!) Continue on Stewart to Wildcat Beach where there are tie racks, picnic tables, etc. Water trough is at the intersection of Coast trail at the beach. When coming back take Coast Trail to the south (intersects right at Wildcat camp) and connect with Old Out Road, then Alamea, then back to Stewart for a great roundtrip ride! This is an all day ride because you have to spend some time on the beach! All beautiful trails!!!
