Very nice hike! Not to hard and a beautiful view of the park and the lakes at the top!

Great hike to get your heart pumping and see some lovely views in a short time frame. My kids love it but it might be a little challenging for younger kids or adults with balance problems. It's also too tight and busy for me to want to take a dog.

Amazing views from the peak. Had hike at just over 4 miles. Very rocky but not difficult. Go early as it becomes very busy with runners and dogs late morning. I started at 6:30 and hit lots of traffic on my decent.

If I could rate it higher than 5 stars I would. Must do if you are on Kauai.

Attempted 5 days ago, made it to Drakes Beach, only confirming, that yes, the lighthouse is closed. Bummer.... Walked Drakes Beach and took in its stunning, beautiful, ocean and mountain view’s!! The drive is gorgeous!! Worth our little “disbelief”. ALSO, there is next to no cell service up that way. If you plan on hiking, make sure you have downloaded maps on your phone to pull up, or best bet, have old fashioned, hard core, hiking topo maps!

One of the most beautiful and rewarding hikes of my life. I can't begin to say enough about the beauty of Na Pali. I did this trail in 2 days, would have stayed longer if there had not been bad weather. Arrive before dawn or get a ride, otherwise it will be hard to find parking.

Go left for the best challenge!!!

Amazing hike on very easy terrain. Too bad I forgot my binoculars because the elks were beautiful and majestic, we also got to see whales in the distance!

the light house trail is currently close for maintenance. Scenic drive heading to the light house. Saw a lot of deers & some elks hanging out with the cows

Beautiful Views! The Elk are Spectacular!!

My first time in Point Reyes. So beautiful! The elk, the wild flowers, the views. At first I was thinking this hike is on the easier side of moderate but the distance definitely makes it a bit more challenging. The distance and fighting through the head-high wild flowers to get to the end.

I am a novice at hiking. This was my third trail. Started a couple weeks ago. This is my favorite so far. Didn’t seem as long as everyone says. I like to go slow to take in the views. So many good views on the trail. It’s a decent incline to the peak. The last 1/4 mile to the peak was tough and parts you wondered where the trail was. But once at the top the views are amazing in all directions. Going down was a little difficult with so much loose gravel over rocks. Very small parking lot.

Loved it! visiting from Charlotte, NC. Never hiked much. This was a fun time for me!

Definitely MUCH FURTHER than 4.4 miles - Fitbit tracked at 7.5 miles round trip. Still a great hike, and we got to do the moonlight experience tonight, which was spectacular! definitely tough, with loads of switchbacks buy big rewards the higher you climb!

Great hike!

We started the hike about 9:30am October 20, 2018. Couldn't ask for better weather. There was a little coastal fog that burned off quickly and no wind.

The first part of the hike is easy and the views of the Pacific Ocean are amazing. Elk can be found throughout the trail. About a mile in, the trail has a good moderate climb.

The real reward is when you reach the point. Because there was no wind, we enjoyed our sandwiches while watching a seal play in the water. We were literally perched on the cliff overlooking the beautiful waves crashing on the shore below.

The return trip was on the same trail, but there were lots of hikers by this time. So glad we left early so we could enjoy some solitude before the crowds. When we returned to the parking lot around 2:00 pm, it was full!

We strolled around the old ranch there looking at the buildings, etc. By the time we returned to our car, about 2:30pm, we noticed that the wind had picked up.

Highly recommend this hike in the morning to avoid crowds and wind!

Started at around 8 am Saturday morning and got there just as some of the early birds were finishing so got a great parking spot!
beautiful hike and I would say definitely moderate ( some parts pretty easy and more challenging near the top)
my Fitbit clocked it at 3.75 km up so 7.5 km total. would do again but hopefully get there for sunrise next time

Third time I’ve climbed this. This time Thursday oct 11. Nice and chilly morning. Parking lot mostly empty. Saw three people on summit. Stayed up there for a half hour. Views were very good. The trail is vastly improved from my last trip up here which was 11 years ago. At 67 years old I expected a tough climb. The last half mile I had to stop about seven times. As I was starting my descent I walked past about thirty kids and a few adults climbing up. My whole trip up and down was about three and a half hours. Looking forward to climbing brokeoff mountain this coming Thursday. This good weather won’t last much longer

Good hike—stunning views of Tomales Bay, Bodega Bay and south to Drakes Bay. Mild incline about a mile into the hike, but easy hiking on the maintained trail. The last half mile on the unmaintained stretch is a narrow, sandy channel through scratchy foliage, so long pants are a plus, but the view is worth the effort. Lots of Tule elk, we also saw a fox and a coyote as well as birds galore. Be aware that the whole hike is exposed, so take water and keep that in mind as regards clothes. Hike this! It’s awesome.

This is a super easy hike and very scenic, but long as everyone says. You will get up close and personal with the elk and the birds at the end. I give it 4 stars because there is no water refill stations in the park at all and bathrooms are scarce. But this hike in particular is great.

Tough. Windy. Spectacular. Worth every step!

totally worth it! start in the morning , get there early

Beautiful, moderate, pet friendly trail. I recommend going at sunrise to get a stunning view of the valley and surrounding mountains.

This was my first solo hike! I've been wanting to say that I've hiked Mt. Lassen and now I can. However, it is HARD. I kept seeing reviews about how much harder and better Brokeoff Mountain is, so I went into falsely thinking that meant this trail was a lot easier. I was wrong! It was a gorgeous day and I got started about 10:30 am on a Sunday and didn't see anyone for over an hour on the trail. My legs burned, my chest burned, and it was a chilly 35º, and probably even just barely freezing at the top. I had to stop many times to catch my breath and give my legs a break. The views were magnificent, the sounds of nature were amazing, and being able to sit up on the true summit and breathe it all in was magical. I expected more wind based on reviews, but I got really lucky and the wind didn't pick up until on the way down. It was so clear that you could see all the way to Shasta, which is amazing after a summer full of fires. Steep, elevated, and cold, but breathtaking.

Perfect trail for beginners with a scenic view

Just a short hike to the lagoon but you can hike more if you want to explore in the beach. We saw coyote and deer.

It took us just under four hours to hike this out and back trail. The views were stunning and we saw many elk as well as a wolf. We enjoyed the hike even though it was raining for about half of the way to the point. The cliffs were a beautiful sight and the sun sparkling on the ocean was beautiful.

easy trails beautiful fall

One of my top favorite trail, very scenic. Lots of Elks. I love the cliffs at the end of the trail, very relaxing and peaceful. Highly recommended.
