- Parking: I started and ended at Land's End Eagle Point. There's usually lots of spots along the road where I began.
- Views: beautiful!
- Traffic: there were a lot of people on a sunny Sunday afternoon. That, combined with the relatively narrow trails, made the walk slower than expected.

awesome hike. many things to see. very dog friendly!

We started around 1pm on Saturday, the traffic was quite heavy, but the views totally still worth it. We went with 2 little kids, the first 1-2 miles are quite manageable and you still get to see a lot. We saw lots of elks and wildflowers, gorgeous! The wind can get strong sometimes, so make sure to dress properly.

Pretty beautiful

Love it. Easy and beautiful. I uploaded some drone footage here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Tx-NJojqss

Great hike with shade. Beautiful views along the coast. Came here on a Saturday morning before 10am and was able to find parking in the Lands End Lookout parking lot. After our hike, cars were waiting around for parking. Highly recommend.

My friend and I did this hike last month with weighted vests.
It was very mild, although my big o' hiking boots were probably too heavy for walking in sand.
We started while it was still pitch black and didn't see anyone until a mile or 2 headed back.
There is an insane amount of elk and some foxes and deer.
The flowers were beautiful. We even got some light rain, so it was wonderful!

Wonderful place. Relaxed easy hike. Better on weekdays

Do this hike now, while the wildflowers are in bloom!

If you go on a weekend, start early to avoid crowds. We left at 9AM and enjoyed walking through the fog as it burned off. Passed only a few people on the way in. The last quarter of the hike (around 11:30), the trail had become unpleasantly crowded.

We are fit backpackers and finished the trail in 3 hours and 10 minutes.

Amazing hike! A family favorite.

Gorgeous views. Do the leftmost path first for amazing views and then take the right path for the old fort wall and the hidden trail up to the cliffs and the graffiti houses. Spectacular and exciting!

Gorgeous views - definitely very busy but the scenery makes all the traffic worthwhile

Easy walk along mostly paved trail with breathtaking scenery at every step and turn making the windy day a worthy one! Beautiful on a 60 degree day with lots of mist and wind. Saw a salamander walking along the path! Watch out for our little amphibian friends! “California orange belly newts!”

Good solid hike, made it all the way to the point! Definitely with the hike, a bit windy and definitely no cover from the sun... at the end there is a bit of sand to trudge through so be ready for that... not too busy went on a weekday, will definitely do it again

Amazing views. Around every turn was another incredible sight. This is a must do if you're in the area.

The path is mostly paved so it’s more of a walk than a hike! But beautiful views and we went on a warm day so the beach was so comfortable

Great easy hike for the weekend! Great views of the bridge.

Simply the most beautiful hike close to a major US metro in my opinion.

This was a good trail with a stroller. The kids (5 and 3 years old) had a lot of fun finding beautiful pebbles in a streamlet near the ocean. They are excited to go back!

One of the funniest trails I have explored thus far. Plenty of Tule Elk as advertised and a plethora of wildlife to see!

Beautiful hike! It delivered the marvelous views as advertised.. On a clear blue day the colors were unbelievable and the rich variety of vegetation and wildlife were glorious. We saw elk, bobcat, jackrabbit, and lots of birds. Wild strawberries in bloom, California poppies, irises, and other wildflowers. The trail was pretty packed- Presidents Day, and the wind was wicked strong and cold. Definitely needed a lot of layers. Really wished I had a hat or hood.

beautiful.
