Easy trail with clear paths. Nice coastal view near the end but nothing too crazy.

Far end of trail is closed. But still breathtaking views.

Great views of the pacific, sea lions, and small wildlife. Great ADA access trail as well. Bring a jacket, it gets cold on the pacific side!

This is tied with Point Lobos's Cypress Grove trail as the very best in Northern California, IMHO. It is even better than the Muir Woods trail north of San Francisco. Fantastic ocean views, cliffs, sea lions (or are they harbor seals?), birds, cliff plants. Stunning!
