Went a couple weeks ago for the first time and super muddy! Didn’t bring the right shoes and not kid friendly. The views were amazing though.

So breathtaking if you get here before clouds and fog lifts. Hike is so so worth it. Bit muddy in places but nothing good shoes can’t handle. Holy wow. 10/10 stars!

Great trail, great views! Moderate trail where you will need good hiking boots. Muddy and lots of tree branches to step over. Gorgeous views of the coast and water. Spotted some sea lions and a pair of whales at the end point!! Not too many people on trail in the morning, but more and more by afternoon. I would do this trail again!

Hiked on Sunday afternoon. Plenty of parking and moderately busy. VERY muddy, but we saw a few whales and sea lions from the viewpoint at the end which made it worthwhile.

Great day. The sun came out with little to no wind. Sea lion basking in the sun at the point. Good thing I got there early. By the time I got back to the parking lot it was filling fast.

This was such a beautiful hike. The rating is moderate but when it's been raining hard the mud can make it hard going. Amazing views. You really are on the very ledge 400ft down... scary at times.

This hike was really fun! It’s uphill on the way back which is kind of tiring but the views are breathtaking.

Always a great hike. Midweek will give you ample opportunity for solitude. As always, watch carefully where you step on some parts of this trail, especially traversing the ridge top about 2/3 way in. That’s over 400 feet down to the ocean.

We hiked from Cape Lookout State Park Campground to Cape Lookout and back. We hiked the North Trail and the Cape Lookout Trail. The trails vary from wide and well graded to muddy and covered by masses of tree roots. Overall the trails are clean and in good condition, they both have decent views, the Cape Lookout Trail had the better views of the two.
