Street parking is available on Sea View Rd. Enter at an obvious gate and take this well-maintained forest road into the park to join up with South Trail, Central Trail, or North Trail or take an immediate right to take Plantation Trail. Almost all of the trail is well-shaded.
The trail heads along the San Andreas fault. At the lowest point of the trail, there is a small pond that was created when the San Andreas fault moved. At the top (end), the trail goes through a beautiful prairie.
