A nice 4 mile hike at China Camp State Park - starting at the day use parking in the campsite follow Powerline Fire Trail up to a left on Bay View Trail then left on Back Ranch Fire Trail and finally left again on Shoreline Trial back to the parking lot. Gentle ascent for three miles then a fairly steep stretch down Back Ranch Fire Trail (I slipped three times, watch where you're going) and then gentle again for the final half mile.
(Previously: shorter 3 mile hike of Back Ranch Meadows and Turtleback Point loop)
