It is a short hike through the woods, across open bluffs, and past seasonal wildflowers down to the beach. Low tide is the best time to visit. On the high bluffs above the beach there is an open meadow with scattered stands of alders. Visitor facilities include restrooms, parking, and a small picnic area with, tables and stoves. Park open sunrise to sunset.

steep as you start up the trail but worth the effort. great ocean views and coastal terrain.

Nice short hike with views of the ocean, but nothing amazing. Can't see the headlight though...

Enjoyable simple trail that ends up at the beach near Trinidad, Took a few photos but not of the beach. I got distracted throwing a stick in the surf for my lab, Brook,... Nice little stream and a couple of bridges. Way too many spur trails along the way, Found two couples a bit lost due to the confusing spurs along the trail.

Nice little trail with some great views. Surprising amount of cars and lack of people on the trail. Quite a few spurs off in every direction with people taking alternate routes away from the main trail. heard kids playing off in the trees in several places. Nice ocean views off some of the spurs!

A little incline at the beginning. Beautiful scenic views of the waves. The lighthouse isn't visible except for the very top. Bummer that there's lots of brush in the way. Loved that there's lots of benches for viewing. Wish the lighthouse was easier to see

Starts out paved, then splits and you have the option of a lovely wooded dirt trail or staying on the paved road. Gorgeous views across the ocean.

Pretty steep incline at least to begin.... we took a wheelchair up the hill and boy that was a workout. So not really wheelchair friendly. Also the road to the lighthouse is closed but up at the point to view the lighthouse you can see a tiny part of the top of it looking to the right standing on top of the lookout.

Beautiful, short and easy hike with incredible views of the ocean. The lighthouse is hardly visible, but besides that it was a wonderful hike
