Located near Cerro Alto campground. This creekside trail is a more moderate hike that dips and winds along the East Fork of Morro Creek passing through a riparian woodland. The first half-mile passes by oaks, bay trees, ferns and madrone. Watch out for poison oak. Chaparral vegetation becomes more dominant as hikers ascend to a one-mile marker at an old road junction. After turning south and less than a mile walk, the Loop Trail intersects with the Cerro Alto Trail. At this point hikers can choose to climb the steep mile to the summit of Cerro Alto Peak and enjoy the spectacular views of the coastline. Less avid hikers can proceed along the old road and switchback about 500 feet west to make the one mile descent back to the campground. Be sure to carry drinking water.
