One of the best hikes on the Central Coast of California is 25 miles North of the Bridge Street Inn.  Park at the south turnout a stone’s throw away from Ragged Point.  Walk through the gate on the East side of the highway.  The trail is rather strenuous.  Up and back is 4 miles with a 1700′ elevation gain.  For a majority of the hike the ocean will be in sight.  The dramatic ocean views will accommodate the adventurer who wants to go for a quick 30 minute hike or the hiker who will make it to the top but on their own slow pace.  Beauty unfolds at every turn.

At the top of the ridge lives a sea of green grass and oak trees.  Rest against an oak tree.  Take in vista views of the ocean to the west and mountains valley’s to the east.  The ridge top is rather flat with a few gentle rolling small hills tops.
