Love this trail! So much fun and lots of things to explore! The cave area is so cool by the tide pools. Saw tiny crabs, fish, coral, anemones.
Wasn't as easy as other people led on to be, but a good workout nonetheless. Great views, my dog loved it.
Ok so we went to the top of one cliff and walked down on a steep trail. It was beautiful but I would not classify it easy, especially getting back up.
Short, easy, pleasant with spectacular views. Dog friendly.
Right next to houses but if you take a trail to the ocean it's fun!
Cool hiking spot to take a lady friend
Had a really good time. The parking lot opens at 9am so if ur an early hiker like me, then just park in the nearby neighborhood, though I will warn you, there's signs that say permit parking only. I just didn't care lol but the cove is beautiful. A lot of wildlife and great views. I will definitely go back.
pretty awesome. best time is when it's low tide. once you get to the cove you can cross and get to the other side of the cove where you can jump in and swim under to the other side if you're daring! says no dogs. but I did see one on the beach. it's very lose powder going down the hill to the cove so don't wear anything you want to stay clean. and a good incline back up!
This was a beautiful trail that leads down to the beach and tide pools. We went as the tide was coming in, so we had to time our crossing. The walk down is very steep on a dirt path. The geology was great and we saw many invertebrates in the tide pools.
Fun trail with great views
Very nice short trail
I don't like walking on all of the small rocks. My friends made fun of me because I am cautious when it comes to the rocks and water. My friend fell while on the rocks so the fear is real!!!! Several dead birds and a dead seal so it smelled bad in one area.
