My first multi night trail. We did it in 3 days 2 nights and it was awesome. If we do it again I would definitely take a little more time to enjoy the small things a little more. We did it in late July to early August and it was perfect weather. Plenty of water sources and camping was fun. Would definitely recommend it!

We only hiked from China beach to sombrio but none the less it was an amazing experience. The trail is extremely muddy so I would recommend wearing gaiters on it. Don't camp to close to the rising tides!

One of my favorite trails! Beautiful, but difficult to trail run on due to roots and other obstacles.

Did the hike in January of 2014. Not the best time of year, but well worth the mud and rain for the amazing views.

Difficult to navigate in a few spots, steps washed out and a lot more rugged than we expected but SO worth it

Great first time multi-day hike. Beginners should take the full 4 days, though.

Wonderful trail with many access points. Can be very muddy in after it rains.
Spectacular beaches, amazing forest trails, good signage. Always wild, west coast wildlife; fun to watch whales during the migration, sea-lions, vultures and more when 'in-season', very occasional black bears, nearly always seals, otters, and a huge variety of birds.

Amazing hike. A bit more difficult than I expected but so happy to have experienced it. Beautiful trail with opportunities to sleep on the beach and listen to the ocean as you fall asleep.
