A beautiful peninsula into the Pacific Ocean with plenty of views There isn't much elevation change in this peninsula walk, just great views! You'll be hiking along cliffs 400 feet above the water below. If you are lucky and its not raining you'll be rewarded with amazing views.

Didn't listen to the warnings of mud as well as I should have. It started out fairly dry at the trailhead with only a few small puddles here and there. At the halfway point that changed dramatically, with deep puddles, mud that tried to take a boot off and covered the width of the trail.

The end point was pretty calming, with an odd little bench to look out in to the sea. Though I actually much preferred the view walking along the cliffside towards the beginning.

Fun trail. Starts out easy but due to heavy rains there are many muddy spots. Lots of up and down hills with roots that make traversing a bit challenging. At the trail head they rate this hike easy to moderate. Starts out easy with groomed trail and last mile becomes moderate with mud and roots. Take your hiking boots!

Amazing trail, felt so good to be near the ocean again. Views where exhilirating, breathtaking. Excellent escape from society back into nature. Flowers and plants growing up high on both sides of the trail, felt like a secret garden leading to magical places.

Loved this hike, yes it is muddy but the views are amazing. Saw lots of wildlife from up top including dolphins, seals, and bald eagles.

an absolutely beautiful hike. it was super muddy but that's to be expected. I would not rate this trail as easy. There's lots of ups and downs and it can get a little challenging walking 5 miles a to b in the mud. I highly recommend this. we saw 4 to 7 whales, a bald eagle, pelicans, and many more critters. it was a photographer's dream.

Great Hike, however, it's extremely muddy right now. Wear hiking boots or old shoes if possible, as you just have to tromp through the mud on this hike right now. Great views along the way, and a nice lookout along the way. Go early, as the parking lot, and the trails get busy.
