Still some green in the valleys on this trail. It's pretty much disappeared from the Las Virgenes Highlands and surrounding canyons on the north side of the 101. The green isn't going to last long so hike this trail sooner than later.

Unfortunately this was more of our rest stop before we headed to 17-mile drive. We didn't get to fully explore, but it left a lasting impression!

When planning to drive here account for weather. We came on a misty afternoon, still had beautiful scenic spots but a few of them were covered by the fog. Definitely plan to go back on a bright sunny day!

Absolutely fell in love with this place. Although quite a few people visit, the beauty itself is distracting you don't notice the people. By far THE favorite place I've traveled to in Cali.
