Four starts because I had the pleasure of seeing hundreds of Elk and being more than close. Great ocean views as well...

Great hike that had awesome views. The sand towards the final two miles were a little frustrating but over all it was a great hike. I recommend.

Easy trail. Not too much hikers on a labor day weekend. Bonus is hearts desire beach is nearby.

Another spontaneous trip for me where I didn't research beforehand. I was wearing 6" sandals when I walked this. My feet were sore, but so worth it! I made it to the lighthouse just in time to watch the sunset. This was the first trail I walked/hiked in California and will always hold a special place in my heart. ❤️

Mostly rolling hills with some views...you may have to share the trail with some steer but...

One of our favorite hike in the entire Bay Area. Spectacular views...mostly rolling hills...elk and maybe if you are lucky a whale or two.

Had trail all to my self on a Sunday morning at 730 - tons of wildlife - what makes this a moderate hike is about 1+ miles from the actual point, the trail goes from compacted sand to sand that you would find on the beach. Not great on the feet and hamstrings but worth the trip. As mentioned - bring long pants if you go all the way to the Point

Great hike! I agree with previous reviews, it's more of a moderate hike especially if you complete the whole trail. Lots of wildlife and beautiful nature. And of course you can't bet the great ocean views!

Beautiful hike with ocean views to one side and bay views to the other. Tons of tule elk (it was rutting season). Making the full trip to the point is definitely worth it.

Hiked from Estero Trailhead to Drake's Beach. Excellent workout, which was about 9 miles. Trails are well maintained and signage is effective.

IMO this is closer to moderate level than easy, but definitely a great trail! Saw many elk, and other various wildlife. Also some wildflowers, even in July. Saw a sign at the trailhead about mountain lions but thankfully did not see one. Last mile in is all sand, which made that last mile in and first mile out pretty challenging!

Easy hike down to lighthouse, but a little more difficult walking back up all the stairs. Was quite windy and misty when we were there, but had fun anyway. Did not see much wildlife, since visibility was not that great due to the fog.

Great hike with a rewarding view of the coast and hillside. Some tiresome incline but a very well balanced hike and the distance feels great. We did the full in and out in just over 2 hours. The trail is overgrown (we went in mid-July) so you'll get scratched up on your legs if you don't wear long pants of some kind.
