Overview

You'll get to another "On Top of the World" view showcased atop the Pacifica Ridge.

Need to Know

You are exposed to all the elements here. Be ready for wind, sun, and fog at any time.

Description

The first part of this route is on a paved road. This portion is a great warm up. The way is very easy with views to the southeast. As you get past .2 marker, your view of the ocean and northward opens up.

Continue on to the Milagra Creek Overlook Trail for a short out and back. Join up on the Milagra Battery Road and continue your counter clockwise journey. The trail will become singletrack all the way back on the Milagra Ridge Trail.

There is a climb up some stairs to the peak. If you want to shorten your outing, there are a number of spurs that lead back to the Milagra Battery Road and you can avoid the climb to the peak. The views are exceptional on a clear day. Have fun and picnic here while you are at it.

Flora & Fauna

All the coastal flowers bloom on this high meadow.
