We hiked the trail in late December, just after Christmas. It was lovely. If you want to have lunch along the way bring something to sit on. There is a lovely view of the coast at the end with a dramatic rock and crashing surf. Rather than walking back the way we came we walked the coastal road--some very pretty coastal views including the Klamath river estuary.
This trail is absolutely one of the best in the area.....top 10 for sure in my book. The trail is 9 miles out and back. The side away from the ocean is the longest part and a hill 2-2 1/2 miles long but not crazy steep, just steady uphill gain, then it crests and goes downward to the ocean. The middle 3.5 to 4 miles of the trail are beautiful old growth redwoods. The beginning is flat and runs along a small lake with plenty of Mallards. At the end you get the awesome ocean views and then you get to go back and do it again..... #271
