This was an absolutely beautiful trail!!! We walked along the rim trail and the looking rock as well. This trail and rim trail are very wheelchair accessible. We were blessed with a very clear day with no fog or wind and there are so many beautiful places to view. Very impressed and will be back again!

This is an extremely easy, leisurely hike with beautiful views of the coast. You have to pay the $8 entrance fee for the state park (which is good for the entire day to any of the surrounding state parks) and well worth the views and various trails you can take within the park

Nice little walk with views. Looks like a decent place to camp but I'll never hike here again. It would be good with kids.

I used to come here almost everyday and watch the sunset. A great place to hike, camp, picnic, sightsee, etc. If you don't mind the extra 0.3 mile walk, you can drive past the entrance and find free parking.

The beautiful thing about Patrick's Point is that for one 'day-use' fee ($8.00) you can have an entire day of exploring new things! There are several beach accesses, trails, big rocks to climb, and dense forest to comb. Dogs are not allowed, so if you are looking for a 'dog' friendly place, look elsewhere. Note, to avoid the day-use fee, simply park on Patrick's Point Drive, before the entrance, and there is a short hike through the forest to all of the trail-heads.
