This hike goes through a variety of forest types and ages and offers a couple of excellent views. It starts in the Bear Creek valley and passes a lovely meadow complex called Hidden Valley before climbing through dense, second-growth forest to a ridge-line with a great view of the ocean. It then drops back down to Bear Creek and follows an interpretive trail before returning to the ridge and on to the summit of Chemise Mountain. From the top there’s a wonderful view of the hills and valleys to the east.
