You've got your old growth redwood forest, scrub landscapes, sweeping canyon and ocean views, and a nice bit of elevation gain. If you only have one day to see the sites, this trail is a good complement to the McWay Falls trail that also starts from the same parking area.

Completed this trail for my birthday in May of 2016. Weather was absolutely beautiful, hot but still great. Decently challenging hike! Also right by McWay Falls so make sure you check that out while you are there as well!

Beach views and redwoods? Winning. Definitely got my heart going. Lots of uphill. Loved it.

Awesome hike- prepare to feel the burn! Bring water and don't bother attempting this in jeans.

Nice trail with lots of great views. I wouldn't say it was strenuous though. More moderate, just lots of uphill.
