Went on a quick hike on 1/1 with the dog. Trail was moderately crowded (no surprise). We did it as an out and back along the top bluff. Trail was muddy and slippery in places, but absolutely passable.

Moderate but quick climb up and fantastic views! Even with the blustery weather it was beautiful. We’d definitely go back though we were less into the beach portion of the hike and may just double back on the upper portion of the loop.

This trail was fantastic! We went counter clockwise around the loop as suggested, and it was breathtaking! From the top we could see down to the ocean and the ponds we circled back to. The climb was moderate but short, and the rest was easy and scenic. We can't wait to go back!

Loved it, great views and a great loop that takes you back on a beautiful beach!

Amazing trail with great views:)

The hike itself is definitely easy, and the views are spectacular. What made it hard for me personally was my fear of heights. The trail does get quite narrow in some spots.

This is a beautiful hike on a bluff where you can see the ocean the whole time. On the way back (if you start the loop counter clockwise), you walk along the beach. We parked in the lot near the cemetery, so we took the Ebey's Prairie Ridge Trail and also got to check out the historic Jacob Ebey Cabin and Davis Blockhouse.

Very beautiful! Hike along the ridge and see the amazing views. And hike the beach searching for treasures on way back!!

The hike is a breeze. Just like the other reviewers, it is best to start counterclockwise. Go up the hill then hike down to the beach. Not much people on the hike, which is great. It is dog friendly, but must be on leash. Be sure that you buy the parking pass ahead of time. Otherwise, you will find yourself scrounging for cash or calling the number to purchase it.

Gorgeous views and wildflowers!!!

Parking can be a bear but well worth it. Easier to start off on the hiill and go counter clockwise than to start from the beach mainly due to footing in the soft sand trying to hike up the hill.

really easy trail. what's really great is the view. prime spot for sunsets.

Have hiked this trail at least 60 times in the last few years during every month of the year. I've never been disappointed with this hike. On very windy days you can hike the beach level trail along lake Parego a little out of the wind. Enjoy!

Nice trails throughout the park. Head for the interior trails for bike trails with no technical element.

Beautiful trail.. such a relaxing walk all along the ocean

So glad I finally did this hike! The views are absolutely incomparable. I would never go when it's raining, as the trail is all clay, and way too close to the edge of the bluff. Having a fear of heights, it wasn't my favorite trail ever for that reason, but the view makes up for it.

The hike was great. We spotted one bald eagle and several juvenile eagles. Breezy, but not cold. We started up the hill and came back along the beach.
