    Makes a nice loop with the Backbone Trail. This is a remarkable ancient mountain landscape. Rocky, volcanic peaks punctuate the skyline. Highlights include Split Rock, Balanced Rock, & Echo Cliffs. For more information visit hikingthegoldenstate.com.

    Be sure to do the extension to the Tri Peaks area for some fun scrambling. A good loop, especially when the clouds are sitting in down by the coast.

    This was an awesome trail. Lots of diversity seeing the inland side of the canyon, balanced rock, oak creek,brush tunnels, then ocean views, sandstone peak and a quick descent back to the parking lot.

    Got an early start so the temps were not bad at all. Beautiful rock formations, and scenery. Sandstone Peak is the highlight. A moderate hike but very do-able.

    A wonderful moderate to strenuous, roughly 6 mile loop hike. Some parts shaded and others you're out in the open. Sandstone Peak was great and you have a beautiful on a clear day! There were a lot of bugs out just to warn you. This hike will always be remembered because I asked my now fiancee to marry me!

    We parked in the second parking lot. My 9 year old son has an easy time with the 1400 feet elevation gain. Bring at least a liter of water and food, sunscreen and a hat. We started at 1pm and returned at 5pm after a 45 minute break at the top of Sandstone Peak. Great hike, but plan an entire day, just for driving to and from the trailhead.
