McHugh Peak Trail

The last trail marker is not labeled correctly, if you want to go to the peak and see some nice panoramic views of the ocean take the left trail! That's about a 2 mile hike I would say moderate, there are done strap parts.

Rendezvous Peak Trail

It is possible to do a much liger hike in the same valley. There is a trail behind the old military ski area where one can walk up the SW ridge to Rendezvous Peak, drop down to the saddle the ascend to Mount Gordon Lyon, walk the ridge toward the old Nike site then take any route to the valley floor and back to the parking lot. About 5-6 miles total. Good training.

First attempt was with a group and we didn't summit because of the wind and snow. Second time I took a smaller group of more experienced hikers and we made it no problem. Keep a strong consistent pace and you should be fine. Great views from the top.

Great hike! Took my little pup out to hike for the first time and she loved it. Was a bit chilly once we got to the top. Had a few small mountain to get up before actually getting onto the peak. Worth the hike! Was a bit difficult but if you love to hike it's worth it. Make sure you have lots of water and some snacks.
