Beautiful trail! There are still some wildflowers as of May 4, but not much.
Please, for the love of God, if you hike on a beach trail, don't bring your headphones. Two reasons: 1) You have the natural soundtrack of the waves. Isn't that why people hike here anyway? 2) As someone mentioned in an earlier review, and I can confirm, there are snakes on this trail. Including rattlers. We saw 2 snakes, one was a juvenile rattlesnake. So please be careful.
Whales and dolphins like this area too, so as you're walking, keep an eye on the water. Saw a baby and mama humpback when we arrived at 930am.

This is a relatively easy hike that will surround you with the Pacific and wild flowers (thanks to the rain) and views of bluffs and beaches.

Not much of a hike, but beautiful views from the top.

Oceanside views along a roped trail around the cliffside. Steep ascent from state beach parking. Parking costs $3 there. Rugged, sandy trail, easy to navigate though. Huge waves and groups of sea lions along the rocks below.
