Rewarding hike with beautiful coastal vistas and the beauty of Alamere Falls waiting for you at the end. Trails are well maintained and well marked with a nice mix of shade and sun. Make sure to grab a trail map and follow it carefully. We got distracted and missed a turn that added an extra mile and a half and a strenuous climb on the Coast Trail to an already long hike. Beautiful coastal views on that little side trip though. Alamere Falls was enjoyable, if not a little crowded. Felt a bit like Disneyland with the line of tourists taking selfies there. Restrooms and water available at Wildcat Camp. Great hike !
