Great. Starts off up and up an we went right once we got up to Bolinas Ridge. I think it’s more scenic going through the redwoods. Went down to McCurdy and then went back the way we came.

Rodeo beach and the road to get there (Bunker Rd) are currently closed related to COVID-19. Instead I parked at “Coastal Trail Parking and Restroom” off of McCullough Road and hiked down Coastal Trail then walked along Bunker Road to get to the Rodeo Beach trailhead. This adds about another 3 miles, but easy and well worth it to get to the trail, just watch out for mountain bikers! The views along Rodeo Beach Coastal Trail Loop are INCREDIBLE! Very well managed trail and hardly anyone there. No shade so bring your sunscreen!

When a trail includes views of the ocean, I'm hooked! The stairs are tough but worth the effort to get that view at the top. Check out the historic bunkers for a nice break. my least favorite portion of the trail is the last third. In descent, you join the wide fire road that is used by bikes and sometimes they aren't so great at announcing they will be passing you. Stay to the right and you'll be fine. I do enjoy the final mile or so through the below-sea-level wetland space. the temperatures drop slightly (and have your big spray ready) there is mostly no shade on this trail and there are some steep portions with loose rocks. I love my hiking poles as added support for those moments.

Stolte Grove, shown as trail origin, has very limited parking. Best trailhead parking is at 4-Corners (Panoramic & Sequoia Valley Rd), end Lattie Ln, Edgewood/Sequoia Valley Rd, Edgewood/Marion. hvlt.org for map, wildflower info

Steep but good

Beautiful! Crisp airs hits you in the face like a bat but you’ll love it. The worst part is going up the stairs but it’s not that bad if you take your time. I suck at most things but I was able to do this!

Well-maintained loop trail with variety of coastal and inland valley views. Lots of hikers, runners, and bikers use the trail, along with dogs (on leash). Not much shade, but the proximity to the coast keeps you cool. Parking is free and plentiful on weekends before noon.

Perfect day hike with stunning beach views and a nice amount of elevation gain to get your blood flowing. I love the military history and continuing to the nike missile site is a must!

Great views all the way around. Somewhat busy on a Saturday, lots of traffic when we were leaving (around 3:00).

Trail is in good shape today

2nd try. 1st 100 yards are the hardest, overgrown, trees down, lots of vines. On the upper part of the trail some good sole has installed hand ropes to assist in the last part of the trail to the falls. Be careful the ropes may not be secure. I recommend: Heavy clothes,No shorts or short sleeves, heavy gloves, glasses or safety glasses, heavy hat or bike helmet, a very good walking stick and maybe and extra rope. Bring a camera and maybe a GPS (real one).

According to my Husbands Apple Watch, this trail is a lot longer than 4.8 miles. We weren’t able to finish the whole thing because we had young kids with us but what we climbed ( about half of the trail) was a beautiful hike with views of the ocean most of the way. I enjoyed going in February because it wasn’t hot and some of the wild flowers were blooming. There were a lot of WW2 structures to explore. In the beginning of the hike it was all uphill. There were stairs and railings in some areas and some parts were rocky areas of dirt or actual roads. Walking through Rodeo beach was nice. We took our dog with us and everyone that had a dog was leashed on trail but at the beach most were off leash. In the lower areas there were lots of people on trails but in the higher areas there were fewer people committed. I would definitely come back next time with my older kids to do the whole thing and bring a hat next time. It’s a great place to see sunsets!

Gorgeous views, very dog friendly. Go early for less crowds and less traffic getting there.

Great hike to take with the dog, great views of the ocean and the city and the old military installation. It was a perfect day for a Valentine’s Day hike

Awesome hike. Good incline at the beginning, all downhill towards the end. My dog loved it too.

Amazing views. Enough dogs and people to be a great place to take your pup for socialization. Not hard to find parking. About 70% of the route is on fire roads.
