The north end of the King Crest Trail provides intermittent, breathtaking views to the east and west as well as south to King Peak as it passes through various vegetation types including extensive stands of chaparral and madrone and burned forest. The trail is very narrow and steep in some places, with steep drop-offs. About half the hike is Miller Loop, which drops steeply to Miller Spring at the headwaters of Honeydew Creek. The burned areas are loaded with wildflowers in spring and summer; beware of rattlesnakes in warm weather.
