I loved this trail. You can get off to walk the beach, I saw surfers, sea lions, bunnies, squirrels, beautiful flowers and much more. Down by the shore there’s lots of wood piled up in a tasteful manner. Very peaceful. A must.

Not a bike friendly town like Monterey or Carmel. We are likely never to come back here again.

This trail is truly a gem! The views of picturesque San Simeon are unparalleled. And it’s so cool to go from the beach to the eucalyptus groves to the cliffside views. Actually one great thing is that the landscape keeps changing but always in an incredible and enchanting way. This is for sure an enchanted forest! One negative note, but exciting! so at near the turnaround point, the apex, it becomes overgrown a little and you don’t know exactly which way the path is. My friend says, “this is rattlesnake country.” And then I couldn’t believe it, 2 minutes later we see a rattlesnake right in the middle of the trail and of course turn around immediately. We didn’t see the rattle but it had all of the other identifying traits. And then, we saw another snake almost right after! Not a rattlesnake. So in summary this is an amazing trail with incredible beach views, but be aware of snakes, and know what to do in the unlikely circumstance you are bitten!

Trail was awesome! Many different spots to go down to the water. The weather is perfect as always at the beach. Fun activity and get away. If you want to see a video: https://youtu.be/t5BKeKQwZDY

Nice hike some great views of the coastline and ending the trail down on the beach for a picnic was the way to go. We did encounter a very large fallen tree across the trail the we had to scramble over to continue down the trail. some area are tight making it hard to pass people but overall the trail is quite. watch out for the poison oak.

Beautiful trail! We went past the forested area and the trail was a lot more dense and overgrown. We had two kids and two dogs. We found 5 ticks altogether so far (2 on the dog). Dogs have frontline and we wore pants. Just don’t forget your tick repellent. No regrets for the beauty, only that we should have sprayed ourselves before we left.

Perfect easy hike. The views are stunning. It gets crowded so at times mask is necessary. No issues with bugs or bears. Wonderful family friendly trail.

Beautiful, easy out & back trail along the ocean. The stunning views are well worth a visit! There’s lots of parking spots in the lot and a bathroom area (4 single unisex bathrooms total). You’re welcome ladies!

Excellent trail. Starts on the beach where it gets a little busy during the weekends. Once on the trial it’s easy to physically distance. Amazing views of the bay, San Simeon pier and small ‘secret’ pathways leading to the bluffs overlooking the ocean. There is great wine bar/food truck Sebastian with ocean view right next to the start of the trial but it requires a small detour to main route to enter

Nice easy trail with good views. Uncrowded on a Sunday afternoon. Lots of ticks on the dogs afterwards so beware.

I love this trail. It feels like a mystical forest when you are in the trees. It runs along the ocean in many areas with spectacular views. There are beach areas you can get to with some scrambling. I don’t know if there is a more direct route to the trail, but we just walked along the beach until we saw the trailhead.

Lots of different views while on this trail! We stopped multiple times just to look around right where we were. Opportunity to see a few animals. We really enjoyed it and will definitely go back!

Lovely trail if you’re in the area. To get to the trail you have to walk down to the beach until you reach a trail with an incline to the right. The view was nice, plenty of shade. We hiked at around 5pm on a Saturday, there was not a lot of foot traffic. We were on the look out for bears and cows and did not see any. We did see plenty of cow scat, just be sure to watch your step.

It was a peaceful trail. We only saw one couple. But we came home covered in tics. I would not use this trail. I was terrible.

Gorgeous hike! We went all the way to 2.5 and went down to a private beach. Checked out a cave, had snacks and then made our way back. The tree groves were awesome!! Must do if you are in the area.

This trail is officially the best one I’ve done in California. Absolutely stunning and enough distance for a good workout without taking away from the beauty all around you!

Fun little trail. Somewhat overgrown on northern half. As I got back to the parking lot I saw a brush trimming crew going in

Best trail ever! So beautiful. Never saw a sign whether bikes were okay or not, but it was a great trail for mountain biking... the tree grove was amazing!

The views are beyond beautiful. Plus a good part of the trail is through a eucalyptus grove that creates a tunnel or covered bridge type of experience with shade and wind protection. Definitely follow the small offshoots for great views! From the parking lot, walk down the beach about halfway. You’ll see a dirt trail going up and then left. When you get to the white fence post, cross the fence and make a left, following the trail around the bay to the next point. Dogs on leashes. Our little girl Loved it! We didn’t see any cows nor a bear but I took a picture of the fresh-ish poop we saw. Easy exertion. Recommended and we will do again.
