There are 3 trails here. Stop at site #1 and go up the stairs to find the steep ascent to the upper trail. Turn left(east) and follow the trail along the coastline. You will pass through a dark, creepy wooded area, but emerge at a small clearing with a partial view of the ocean. Turn around and follow the trail west, and it will run along the creek until a dead end. You can also access this part from site #15 just past the loop. All the trails have dense vegetation which is hard to get through at times. A very nice trail otherwise and the campground is beautiful. My dog and I liked it, but spotted some bear scat on the top portion fyi. We hiked it in late November, so there was no one else there and the campgrounds were obviously closed for the season.

The trail begins at campsite # 15. The trail to the right goes towards Rocky Creek. It is very overgrown, and difficult to pass through the ferns, vines, and low trees. Expect to go over and along fallen logs, and through some muddy sections of until the trail finally ends. Track your hike, as you may need help finding your way back. From campsite # 15, the trail to the left goes up along the hillside towards the ocean. The ocean view is blocked by trees, but I found it an interesting hike through the ferns and trees.

Could not even locate the trail. Turned back. Bummer.
