Absolutely breathtaking views! There are a few trails currently off limits due to erosion, but there are still a few further down by the restrooms that allow you to get some great views!

We would have given 5 stars but the trail from Ecola Point to Indian beach doesn't actually go through to Indian Beach; it stops about .25 mi short. This trail is a beautiful short walk along the coast and is dog-friendly. Also, there's a $5 fee to get into the park.

Great views of Indian beach, good for photography but trail is wrecked halfway through. You can't get to the beach from here.

Great hike. Though you cannot make it to Indian point right now you can still make it to the beach with few people.

Trail still closed but nice walk on the beach at low tide is worth it. Lot's of cool rock formations and a cool lighthouse to look at.
