Beautiful trail by the beach. Not to difficult. I am a beginner and was fine. No dogs are allowed on the trail.

Absolutely beautiful, great views, easy hike , lots of wild flowers, saw at least 10 sea lions, lots of birds

A very underrated or somewhat lesser known park with a handful of trails including Salt Point Trail. If you arrive at low tide you'll get access to tide pools and see lots of amazing creatures. One highlight are colonies of Purple Sea Urchins and Bat Stars. Yes, Bat Stars are a thing, apparently. They are mollusks similar to starfish, but with much shorter arms. Who knew?

As expected, since the park isn't that visited, mainly due to the secluded location on HWY-1 North, as opposed to the heavier traveled southern stretch below the Bay Area, you have a solid chance of seeing seals lazing on the rocks at a close distance.

The rocks! The rocks are fairly unique looking. Go check out dem rocks on dis trail.
