Trail was nice on this cool day. Lots of people out and the shortcut was easy to navigate. No signal or phone service.

HikingGreat!

Gorgeous well maintained trail. I recommend getting there early as the parking lot fills up pretty quickly. We got there at 7 AM and it we got one of the last slots. Hiking sticks worked great as there were a lot of loose gravel but they are not necessary. Make sure to keep a close eye out for the maker if you choose the shortcut which cuts about 3 miles from your hike but if you did the long way you’ll have a gorgeous mile walk on the beach to the falls.

Pretty cool hike with lots of different styles and views. Not too challenging but has some steep parts. Overall a good change of pace with ups and downs.

Hiking

Went on this hike 4/10. Left from Sacramento at 6:30. Got there around 9:30. Parking lot filled up but they let us park on the side of the road. They trail itself is super beautiful with wild flowers. There were SO MANY people though. We didn’t take a short cut and it took us around 12.2 miles round trip. Lots of poison oak. The trail takes you down to the beach and the falls. Hiking poles defiantly help.

Beautiful hike! 9+ miles but easy terrain with only a few hills. It does get windy at the point, dress in layers.

HikingGreat!

We started at 830a on Friday and the parking lot was just starting to fill up. beautiful views both directions, either overlooking the ocean or in the trees or along the trail. wildflowers were gorgeous, saw a rabbit, 4 deer and a snake. we missed the shortcut to the falls which was fine as we had read the warnings so we walked to wildcat camp then down the beach to the falls and back same route. falls weren't gushing but still beautiful. we took the high trail in and stayed to the right back out (I forget the names for this slight deviation). all total, 13 miles, 30k steps. loved every step.

HikingGreat!

Awesome trail , up along the bluffs then back into the woods, meadows and lakes . We missed the short cut trail and went all the way to the wildcat campground then hit the beach and walked back to the falls from there . From the parking lot to the falls via wildcat campground according to my phone was 8.6 miles then taking the shortcut trail back to the parking lot was 4.6 miles. The trail was pretty moderate , a few pitches up and down but also enough flat to catch your breath. Nice time!

4/8/2021- Thursday- we left Stockton at 6am on got to the trailhead about 9am due to some traffic. parking lot still had so much parking left available. bathrooms are open and are pretty clean which are located in the parking lot. my hubby and I did this trail in it's loop clocked in over 11 miles. we finished in under 4hout 30 min but we are pretty fit so it was a pretty easy hike for us. I loved this trail because it have so much wildlife. we encountered banana slugs, lizard and elk! we seen the waterfall, a lake, the ocean, the forestry and the beach front which is hard to see all in one trail so that's the beauty of this trail, YOU GET IT ALL! there is so much vegetation and when taking the shortcut route (if you do) the pathway is so narrow and poison ivy is on both sides so wear long sleeves and pants. I did my research before coming so I was well aware! the hike is pretty easy and maintained. very little incline here and there. it's just it's longer than most hikes and that's fine with me but if you aren't able to do the shortcut route you will be doing about 14 miles out and back. we did the 7 miles to the falls and the 4 miles shortcut back to the parking area which meant we climbed up the rocks. thankfully I wore the right shoes and it had grip so I was able to do so. it can be very dangerous so if you second guess yourself don't even do it because it can be slippery due to the rocks and not much to hold on. but other than that I loved this trail and I want to come back again soon!!!! the weather was about 55 degrees today but with clear sunny skies I was fine with a crop top and leggings (except for long sleeves during the shortcut route )

HikingGreat!No shade

*Friendly reminder to stay on the trail and off the wild flowers.* One of the most scenic and accessible hikes around. No wonder it’s so popular. Beautiful wildflowers (maybe wait til late April/early May for full bloom), lots of wildlife (saw plenty of elk) and scenic views throughout. The trail is mostly flat with the last mile in loose, dry sand. Highly recommend and worth the drive. Tip - bring a windbreaker and binoculars!

This hike is AMAZING. But y'all, the shortcut is not a designated trail and the official website begs people not to take the cut due to erosion and treacherous cliffs. And yet...so many people do it anyway. Bleh. We got to the trailhead early to beat the crowds and managed to be the first people to the falls (around 9am). It lives up to the hype - it is so awesome. We then made the trek back down the beach, saw a herd of Tule Elk, and then headed back. On the way to Wildcat Beach we took the Coast Trail, but took the Ocean Lake Trail on the way back. Both trails are gorgeous with so much wildlife (deer, elk, newts, snails, slugs, quail, and on and on) and, in the spring, so many wildflowers. Definitely one of the most beautiful trails I've ever done.

The drive was so worth it, 10/10. We enjoyed the flowers and the scenic view were amazing all throughout the trail. Also enjoyed the drive on the way to Point Reyes. Weather was perfect, cold/windy but we were dress for the weather. We started the hike in the morning and was the first car to arrive but once we’re done hiking around noon, the parking was already packed so come early.

The trail was really nice. Such beautiful views. My plan was to only take the short cut on the way back but I started to climb up the rocks and chickened out! According to my phone I walked 17 miles.

it was too early enjoying yellow lupine flowers. I found only two flowers when i visited there on March 28, 2021. I would visit again on early May when i could see mother whales migrating north with babies.

Hiking

Did the 12 mile loop: wildflowers in bloom, trail dry and a pleasant, easy hike. Left at 8am and saw no one as the birds announced on the way to Wildcat Campground where I came across about six camp groups just waking up. Beautiful spot for camping, with picnic tables, grills and a privy. Walked along the beach toward waterfall as tide was going out. Water fall(s) were pleasing enough, stopped for an early lunch before scrambling up the short rocky climb. This should not intimidate any regular hikers. Saw my first hikers coming in from the shortcut at this point and bumped into a steady stream of people and TP on the way back. 11.98 mile hike took me 4 hours & 20 minutes with side trails, etc.

BackpackingGreat!Over grown

8.5mi hike if you take the shortcut. Stay left on the trail the whole time essentially. Would wear long pants and suggest getting there as early as possible. Walking from overflow parking can easily add an extra mile or two to your hike. Oh! And watch out for banana slugs on the trail!!!!

HikingGreat!

One of the most beautiful and gorgeous trails in and around Bay Area. A long drive but the drive itself was so scenic. And must go in SPRING! The wildflowers all through your hike and the lush greens around will make the hike so much more fun and pleasurable. Lots of elks, caterpillars, birds, and even got a sighting of whales! It was cloudy but not windy at all, got there around 10:30, took over 4.5 hours as we were slow, and spent time having lunch and other breaks. As some one said, there were lots of flies when we went all the way down to tomales point for lunch, so perhaps find another place to eat. Relatively easy hike in terms of elevation. Just a long hike. Parking was fine around 10:30, but when we came back, cars were parked way outside on the road. Rest room was about 0.3 miles walk from parking lot. I’ll return next spring for sure.

The trial was awesome. Weather was really nice not to hot or too cold. Some elk only one male that we saw. But the flowers that are blooming now were beautiful.
