I'll leave most of this to the pictures...
Adan, his daughter Emma, Greg, my daughter Libby and I met on Saturday morning at the trailhead. We hiked in 5 miles to Vicente Flat where we found a spot that would accomodate two tarps and two hammocks. Sunday morning Greg left to go back and the four of us to a dayhike toward Cone peak. We hiked up about 4 miles, then headed back to have enough time ti do our camp chores. We left on Monday morning.
This was a great trip with great people. The girls had a lot of fun and did very well with all the uphill and the poison Oak.
Has to be one of the prettiest trails, as far as ocean views and the variety of landscapes and vegetation.
