good for endurance biking

Beautiful morning walk, with access from cliff to beach area. Directly across from Mendocino town for lunch.

Super easy and accessible trail. Gorgeous views and well worth the hike.

Loved going on this hike growing up, now my kids love it! Careful when climbing logs! My husband broke his arm.

lovely trail, especially on an overcast day. there were no trail guides at the parking lot, a shame since it's interesting to learn about the geology, ecosystems, and botany you're passing through. pay attention to your route so you can find your way back...

Excellent short hike with many redwoods.

Variety of beautiful views, beach, tropical, soaring redwoods and the open Pygmy forest at the top. Trail a little confusing at times and that added a little adventure and fun.

Nice trail

Very pleasant walking path, it get a bit close to the cliff edge in some spots but you can get off the trail to walk a little further from the edge.

great spot, few people even on Labor Day weekend. Not a long trail but still worth the trip to see this old growth forest!

for its sheer beauty!

It's a super easy. The views are some of the best I've ever seen. Something out of a movie. Really just go to see the views from the cliffs. the other half is a stroll through town.

hi! great looking trail.

This trail is beautiful. Super easy once you get past the first hill. Some areas were difficult to decipher where the trail was. Be prepared to climb over/under fallen trees. The drive to the trail was horrific, but completely worth it!

Beautiful views of the water along this bluff hike, reminded me of the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland.

Beautiful hike for all..trees, running water, ferns, moss everything you'd want in a simple hike. Get there early for parking rd in is curvy but worth it.

Beautiful place with lots of birds!

Beautiful and breathtaking. It's easy to walk it for hours I would recommend it to anyone visiting Mendocino.

Great trail, with some really spectacular views of giant trees. Easy trail for walking, only one small hill to climb at the beginning. The only small problem is the limited parking, but other than that it's fantastic.
