Tide pools, waterfalls, moss covered forests, rugged bluffs, crashing waves, sandy beaches, jaw dropping scenery... A true hidden gem! The more time you have, the more you will discover. The trails are easy, but not maintained, so keep that in mind. All of the trails with beach access will be steep due to the rugged bluffs and cliffs that make the area so beautiful. Trinidad Head parking lot is the easiest way to access the beach directly.

it is very easy. The trail is flat and easily accessible to anyone. there is a path that is off of this one and that one is a little harder. Beautiful view on the beach!
