The trail was nice with scenic views from the cliffs. However, we followed a side trail down to the beach which apparently you are not supposed to be on and we were told to leave.

Th state map was a bit confusing. The trail starts just to the right of the restrooms, follow the dirt path toward the ocean. We got distracted with all the beautiful views and side paths, so we didn’t complete the entire hike. Epic California coastline views!

Nice little hike along the coat. Stop to check out the fern grotto it’s a nice little cave with ferns hanging from the ceiling. Great views of the coast line!

This trail is through a Wilder Ranch Restricted Area Agricultural Zone. You are actually Not Supposed to be out there. The Ranchers will ask you to leave. Whoever made these maps obviously hasn't done their research. Not to mention which the fields are not organic and the dust is full of 70 years of spray residue in them. The north end borders private property and people end up wandering into it. Trespassers will be prosecuted.
