Yellow Hill Fire Road

I was looking for solitude and found it on this trail located across from Leo Carrillo State Beach.  Overgrown in parts and loaded with ticks in the morning hours, this was a pretty good adventure.

The Sun rises over Leo Carrillo State Beach and Park.  The trail is most overgrown at the beginning.

About half way up the hill I came to a fork.  One direction led straight up the hill and passed an old water tank, the other curved around the hill.  I went straight first and came down on the second trail.  As you can see in Photo 2, there was barely a trail there.

The ocean behind me and some great looking rocky mountains ahead.

A little hazy but that’s Santa Cruz Island on the left and Point Dume on the right.

Photo 2 – Came across this collage of rock singers sitting by the side of the trail for who knows how long.  Strange what you find on the trail.
