Nature tripsGreat!

We really enjoyed our time here! It’s not paved, so prepare for some sand and dirt! Super low difficulty! We took our dog and he loved it! The trail was really clean! We went around 8:30 on a Sunday morning and seemed to be some of the first people there. Our walk back there were a bit more people. At the end we climb down some of the cliffs where the surfers were. That was awesome! We saw some little caves and walked along the beach! Free parking and a great time!

I only give it 4 stars cause its always packed with people (even on a cold day in the off season), but the shoreline is so dramatically stunning, its worth it. just put your best "people bliners" on and focus on the landscape

Crowded, but beautiful. Parking was relatively easy. They had a lot closed off for restoration.

it's a very easy and quick and easy walk. The parking lot was closed at 0745 when I arrived but there was plenty of parking on the street.

Fun with gorgeous views, but you need to switch on and off of an actual road to finish it, which could really bother some people.
