Absolutely beautiful coastline! I've been staying at the pelican point RV park for the past month and 'hiked' all over this place. It really is beautiful, except it's not really what I'd consider hiking. I guess I'm just used to mountain hikes. But there are plenty of hard packed dirt trails all over the place that go for miles. Great for mountain bike riding! There is a nice paved trail that takes you around the ritz Carlton, it isn't that long (maybe 2 miles). It's extremely dog friendly just beware of ticks because they are EVERYWHERE! Make sure you check and recheck yourself and pets if you hit the trails or go anywhere near brush.

It was so nice and peace full. When I went the other day the grass was very overgrown but other than that it was great. I would totally do it again!

Nice loop around for a jog, or a stroll with the dog. There is an open area where you can through around a ball, and beach access if you don't mind a bit of a climb.

This was a great hike. I would say it's moderate to hard with some amazing views. Very steep if you go up the left side.

i came here with friends on an early Saturday morning. You have to or else you ran out of parking, by the time we got here around 830a, parking is full so we had to park on the side street. this was not hard to find just as long as you open your eyes for other cars who are parked or else you will miss it. We started at the purisima creek trail then heading to Craig britton to harkins ridge trail. the views were amazing. When you get to the top, don't forget your sunscreen since it didn't have much shade but when you begin the hike, then there's lot of shade.

Peaceful quick walk. Took me about an hour round trip and I walk a bit slow. Not many people were on the trail, so that was nice. I also brought my dog and let him run off leash whenever there weren't any other hikers.
