this is pretty similar to Mission Peak but with way better views and less people. definitely go before noon because it'll get hot. at a moderate pace finished in about 2 hours.

Def not easy, especially if you have any fear of cliffs and steep inclines near the edge of the Pacific but beautiful and peaceful. Also make sure to google map the parking lot, the directions here will just strand you on 1.

Absolutely beautiful. We saw humpback whales breaching as we walked. Easy incline. Only negative is limited parking.

Is only 4 miles hike, but steep. Very nice. Will be back springtime when the falls are fuller.

Great hike. Easy to follow, not many people, well kept trail. Very eerie while it’s foggy which is pretty cool - makes you feel like you’re in the clouds.

First time trail running and this trail was perfect!

Fun hike! It gets steep at one point which makes going down a little difficult but just take your time and use small steps and your hands for support.

Challenging but manageable- just the right amount of steeps

Great views. It's all paved and can be quite steep. There are two different parking lots. If you're headed north on highway one the first lot on the south side is accessible whereas the one on the north is not available without making an illegal left turn. It's also fun to walk along the old highway one.

Great after work run, mostly shaded but with some good vantage points over the Bay on the way up. The summit isn’t overwhelming but on a clear day you’d be able to see the Pacific but the remaining 364 days of the year you’ll at least be able to enjoy a cloud inversion over the coast.

First 2km and the final 2km before the summit are the most difficult.

So beautiful. The docents are very nice and helpful. The elephant seals were fun snd we even saw whales the day we went. The trails are very well laid out. Just a joy.

great hike. love the ease of the area. some areas are more moderate but still beautiful. love all the wild life.

Great little hike. Nice grade on the up hill to get your backside in shape. Old paved highway makes it easy to follow.

Absolutely beautiful! We had the trail all to ourselves from beginning to end! The efforts are well worth the views and as a beginning hiker, it was a perfect challenge to start kicking it up a notch.

Beautiful spot. There is an old rock quarry in the area that has been decommissioned. I have seen many mountain bikers in the area. All in all, a great place to watch wildlife whether that be in the ocean or along the coastal bluffs. Wildflowers are blooming now too.

Nice views while hiking, however trail was not so great. Ending was terrible as it was just telephone lines and machines. Very foggy and humid throughout hike. I wouldn’t make this place a priority hike

The waterfall trail is absolutely gorgeous.

Do wear your hiking shoes. Most of the trail is loose and dry gravel soil with a few very steep sections. Not recommended during or after a rain. Lots of small branching trails and some are completely encroached by surrounding vegetation making it easy to get lost, but because it's open land, you'll eventually find your way back to the trail.

Multiple waterfalls, lots of shade, dog-friendly, easy loop, not crowded: what's not to like? No permit was required for hiking as this was after 6/30.

Amazing views of the pacific. A bit close to the highway but a great way to unwind after work.

Very easy and paved

Beautiful trail and views! Very steep in some sections. There’s a sign just up the trail a bit which has a map showing a simple trail system, but it seemed there was only one “official” trail. Maybe that’s part of the trail restoration happening. I went later in the day and was the only person out there.

This trail is pretty busy and there are are power lines everywhere. Looking for something more naturey.

Gorgeous view, the trail itself is not that challenging but the trail signs are a bit confusing, grab a map at the trailhead

Beautiful view.

Very nice view, not so difficult even for casual hiker, but prepare a good hiking shoes for small rocks along the trail, and don’t go in a windy day.

good all around trail but the view can get foggy

this loop is not an easy one- I would rate this as medium difficulty because the trail leads near the cliffs where it's very steep and unstable. once you get past the cliff area and pass Mori Point, it gets easier from there. overall great views and very windy!!
