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.
