It's a beautiful walk on the edge with unforgettable views. Highly recommend no matter what age group you're apart of.

Can you ride a bike easily with a child bike trailer around the trail?

Very simple hike that has great views of rocks and bluffs. Expect to see Pelicans, Cormorants and Seals in summertime

Lots of options. We cut over to the beach and walked part of the way back on it. Sandy trail so we didn't go as far as we thought. I say it is moderate.

A beautiful coastal scene around every corner!

This is a great place to hike. It's really flat and the views over the ocean are spectacular. If you get a chance take this hike it's fabulous.

Beautiful scenery. We didn't exactly follow the trail but ended up on the beach anyway and altogether logged 4 miles. It was a nice hike that you could easily increase the intensity level if you choose to.

Pleasant hike, and I'm not kidding; I can't say enough great things about the Dunes camp grounds, other then it's the best camping in 100 miles easily. I grew up camping here my whole life and never once had a problem with rangers or groundsmen. They let my parents get away with some pretty rowdy shenanigans as long as your polite and respectful to them and the nature around you. They even don't mind (or haven't for me) allowing sleeping in overflow parking for the night for free. Very nice people there and much love for that place.

Awesome place I grew up hiking all the time. I love this place no matter what the weather! The head is nuts up there during the big storms (no pun intended), and don't forget to check out the sweet hobbit (cypress) tree u can go inside of!

Really more of a walk/stroll than a hike but it's still very enjoyable. Go at your own pace, great views on a clear day (this time it wasn't) and some cool interpretive kiosks along the route.

You will not be alone but is well worth the drive. Be prepared to have trouble parking on a nice day!
We did see two whales on this trip.

This is one of my favorite hikes to go on when I just need to get away from it all. They've built up the road a bit in the last couple years to get to it, but they've also blocked the second parking lot. Get there early on a weekend to ensure you don't have to park on the side of the road. I do this one at least once a year in November. It gets a bit nippy but the views are georgous. The last time I did this one was in April 2012. The tall ships were in town so it was really croweded when I left. There is another trail to the right to the "hole in the head" This one has a ver steep incline and I've only done it once. The views aren't as great.

If you are looking to get away with a short hike this is a good one to do. Don't forget to stop by the Tides and get some clam choward to enjoy on Doran Beach before you head back!

Great for whale watching.
