Didn’t do the whole rim trail, we did a modified trail. And it was awesome. Took my 5 and 7 year old boys and they climbed in ceremonial, lookout and wedding rock. We had a blast

Great views! Plenty to explore too. There's a pretty cool side trail off the main trail where you explore in and around the rocks.

Stunning views, short do-able walk, a few flights of rock stairs, can scramble to the top of the rock off the path if you want that 360 shot (wear grippy shoes to do that though NOT flip flops).

Plenty of great views on this short trail. Great spot for photography. Could be completed in about twenty minutes. It would be easy to link this to other nearby trails, like Patrick’s Point or the Lighthouse.

Beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. Worth the 8 bucks the state charges to get in. We went late in the day so we didn’t have a lot of time to explore. We drove by the park in the morning and it was pretty foggy. We came back, from a redwoods hike, and the fog had mostly dissipated. So I would recommend going in the afternoon and allow a few hours to explore the rim trails.

yes it is an easy trail suitable for small children ( no wheelchair access)the viewpoint section at the end might not be quite such a good place for kids who will want to scramble up onto the low rock wall exposing them to a sheer hundred foot drop to to rocks and sea below. if you take your children keep avery close eye on them

Too short to be a trail but it was so pretty. I love the sounds of the crashing waves.

The day I was there was overcast but remarkably beautiful. My wife and I enjoyed the seclusion because there were no other visitors. This would be an easy level hike not moderate due to the shortness and minimal amount of elevation gain. If you get the chance spend 20 minutes and take in the sights.

Stunning views. Super short hike. Lots of places to rock climb and whale watch! I've been here multiple times, but still cannot catch a sunny day!

Quick steep trail leads to the top of an enormous rock, sacred to the Yurok tribe. Views of open ocean and migrating whales. Top portion is built out for safe and stable viewing and yet still preserves the uppermost portion if you are brave enough to scramble up for incredible views!
