Inverness, California Map

Wonderful trail with 360 degrees worth of beautiful nature. My wife and I took a handful of 11 y.o. Scouts to hike this trail. We started at 9 am and hardly anyone was there. By the time we started on our way back, the trail was becoming crowded. So, if you like the solitude of nature, arrive early.

The hills are actually more challenging than you think. But the view of the flora, fauna, and scenery is enough to recharge anyone's spirits.

A great trail if you don't mind lots of people who come to see the Tule Elk.

Pretty nice trail, fairly mellow if you're at all used to California hiking. Trail was in good condition except for a few downed trees from a recent storm. Saw a ton of banana slugs and a few rough skinned newts. Took 2 hours out and back at a moderate pace; GPS and altimeter recorded 6.5 miles and 1545' elevation gain.

The view at the point is spectacular and well worth the effort to hike to the point!

Easy trail, awesome view. Great idea for family hiking day, with kid upper 5 year old.

Be prepared to climb a lot of stairs and walk miles to get off just the road. This was a super busy trail with a few hundred people. As someone with bad knees, the stairs were daunting, but doable. Beautiful view!

Great views at the top! There were a lot of trees across the trail at times, made for some slow going at times but worth it.

Moderate but long. It has two high incline points. Recommend wind protection, sun screen, gloves, tight fitting hat, water, all weather shoes (there are some muddy areas), and if you get there past noon, a flashlight.

A gorgeous time with seals and whales, not a lot of people so it was peaceful
