This was a spectacular hike, the views were magnificent of both Avalon and the other side of the island. We hiked on a Thursday afternoon between 4-7 and there was no body else out on the trails. Keep in mind that this hike begins towards the back of the Hermit Gulch camp ground and it is a decent walk from the downtown area to the beginning of the hike so factor that in time wise and mileage. It is a gradual incline to the beginning of the trail but then really picks up in elevation gain. My fitbit watch calculated a elevation gain of 1407 feet for the entire hike which is all done within the first 1.7 miles; everything after that is downhill. The map we used also stated that there was a bathroom at the summit which was false. This trail took us about 2 hours but the average would probably be closer to 3, depending on how fast you hike and temperature. The end of the hike lets out to the Wrigley Memorial (the back way in) and continues to pass the botanical garden before comin back to the Hermit Gulch campground.
As far as self guided hikes go, they seem to be fairly limited on the island so if you are up for a bit of a workout, this is a great option to see some great views.

Rolling hills, birds flying, lizards scampering across the trail, and a light breeze coming off the ocean. I nicer hike is hard to find.

I did the loop twice: once through the Hermit Gulch campsite and the other through the botanical gardens. I came across a fox family, deer, and no rattlesnakes!

The single track out of the campground leads you through the gulch to beautiful views of Avalon. The day we went was in the mid 70s, but felt hot on the trail. Treat it like a hike, bring water, etc.
If you feel like a challenge, when you get to the top, turn right on the road. Just around the bend, turn onto Lone Tree Road. This leads you over some STEEP rollers to an incredible viewpoint. The other side of the island is pristine, no development in sight.

It was the perfect day for the hike. It took me 30 minutes to get to the trailhead by foot from the Hotel Atwater. Then 40 minutes up. This is a great workout with views views views!!!

This challenging hike is worth every uphill step to the top for beautiful views of both sides of the island.

Truly one of the most beautiful and tranquil places with majestic nature and city view photo opportunities. Watch your step; it is nature, and, be respectful of the landscape. March is a not very crowded and thus a good time to enjoy the island and town without the crowds. I highly recommend it.

We hiked from the Botanic Garden to the top, and then down this gulch loop back to Avalon. Very pleasant time. Going up was a jeep trail, but the way down was a footpath. It took about three hours. Not difficult, but wear good footwear.

This is a rigerous hike, so remember to take water and wear a hat and sunglasses. Don't forget sunscreen because it can get hot. Views are great.

My family enjoys hiking and does it often. Our kids are 12 & 14. Don’t underestimate the difficulty of this hike - the 2 miles up does not have any breaks, downhills or flat parts. It’s beautiful, though! The views are stunning, and you feel like you are a million miles away.

Dress for a hike - wear hiking boots and take plenty of water. The 2 miles down the far side of the loop is a pleasant walk- no slipping or sliding. I definitely recommend this hike, but go prepared.

We met a very fit couple at the top who had come off a cruise boat without water or hiking gear and was definitely feeling it. Luckily we had some extra to share, but you won’t enjoy this hike without water, snacks and sunscreen because there is virtually no shade.

Final note: we did not see any buffalo on this hike - apparently this isn’t the part of the island they prefer to hang out on, so you probably won’t, either.
