Like some of the other users, it's not much of a hike but more like a scenic walk. Part road /part trail. Lots of benches and the views are beautiful. I personally prefer to feel lost in nature.

Not much of a hike, more like a scenic walk with lots of benches along the way for beautiful ocean views. Mellow, gradual incline. My favorite quick walk to get my blood moving. Oh, the only view of the lighthouse is from a wooden platform at the top, near the big cross. You can just see the roof peeking out from the trees down below. Hike it for the ocean views and not to see the lighthouse.

Not really much of a trail. 4 stars for the ocean and harbor views... Part of it is a road and the parts that are a trail are mostly cut out from hedges. But the views are incredible and worth the time. I've driven by Trinidad my whole life but had never seen it until today.

Almost hidden, this is a fun little beach with some fantastic views and a good little hike around it.

These pictures and map are not of 'elk' head. These are of the Trinidad Head. Elk Head is located further north, in College Cove trails.
