The coastal Trail follow the bluffs above the Pacific Ocean. Great views for sunsets, remember a camera for this picturesque hike. Take the Coastal trail to the Miwok trail for unbelievable views of the Pacific Ocean and Rodeo Beach. Although steep, this hike is worth the effort.

Great hike, not too many views since the fog was covering the majority of the trail. Make sure to go on a clear day.

I feel like this trail was pretty moderate. If you aren’t use to hiking up pretty steep inclines, this hike may not be for you. Make sure you don’t miss the Wolf Ridge trail head. Heading up near Hill 88 had me distracted and I never saw it. If you hit the graffiti then head back down the hill and look to your right for the trail head.

Easy trail, lots of parking right near the beach.

The trail is mostly fire roads with a short section on stairs. There are several areas that have been rerouted because of closures.

The eastern half coming down from Hill 88 is slightly boring as there aren’t many views and you can’t see the beach. There were several Batteries and other historic things to see along the way.

The hike started off subtle. We were hiking on flat gravel then the trail began to incline & it became more steeper the further we went. The view was beautiful. I brought binoculars & go to see a deer. Make sure you bring lots of water. I enjoyed it I would go back !

Beautiful hike by the coast. A little windy near the water, but views are worth it at the top!

Fantastic hike. Challenging in the beginning, but well worth it for the views. The ocean breezes are heavenly and the route is not very crowded. Not a very complicated route, just pay attention.

Great view but easy to get lost. After 8 miles later and enjoying the beach I had to take a taxi back.

Beautiful hike! The views are stunning. You get a steep hike at first and a nice downhill at the end. Reference your map as it’s easy to go off the trail. Go early too! We started at 8 am and it was perfect!

I did this hike on my own, it was great. The weather was perfect and the views are outstanding. Totally doable, but an excellent work out.

Beautiful and relatively relaxed trail that goes inland and to the beach.

Easy hike but also easy to loose the trail.
But that’s also because I was distracted by the views. Stunning. Fun. Do it.

Majestic views, frog concert and sunset upon returning to the trailhead. First part is all up last part you get to cool down and be in the shade if you are hiking later afternoon. Spotted 2 coyotes at 30 feet.
