HikingGreat!

There are many turnouts along the highway at various locations for parking. Most can accommodate many cars, and rv's, trailers etc...The trail runs parallel with the ocean and it truly is special to see the variations on the beach, the rocks, the cliffs...There were people, but the trail is so long and wide in some areas, there is no issue passing. Most had masks on, everyone was super nice. Great weather day, mid to high 60's and we were still sweating. Great trail for all ages, not good for strollers however. NO fee to park. We saw sea lions, a man shooting a fitness video and a sand artist that was creating a zen maze out of sand and had drawn a really cool octopus in the sand. Great day hike.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful. Nice long walk. Shipwreck at beginning is definitely something to see. Lots of birds. No cover.

Careful when you enter/exit the parking lot, bicycle riders take a blind right turn at high speed from hwy 1, and come right at you. There should be a warning sign for them on 1.

Magnificent shoreline, hiked about 1.5 miles before turning around because dogs were not allowed after that point.

This may be my favorite hike to date. Walking next to the ocean for the morning is such a relaxing way to start your day.

Very easy walk in the marshes along the coast. Amazing views! Dogs are only allowed on about the first half of the trail as drawn here. We went on July 4th and were surprised that it was a little chilly. Long sleeves would have been nice for the wind and the sun.

Shipwreck is right at the trailhead. You can see the boat mast from the parking lot. We almost made it to the end of the trail but took a wrong turn and ended up at a different parking lot so we just turned back due to that & the wind. Glad we put tick spray on, lots of high dry grass on this easy, flat, well maintained bluff trail. My son was able to easily bike this trail on his 0 speed bike (didn’t know bike weren’t aloud -oops). Gorgeous views of the bay. Got windy so layer up. Saw a snake, trail does have beach access, 0 trail markers. Recommend-the shipwreck is so cool!
