This was an amazing experience. Hike through the rainforest then emerge onto a preserved beach with protruding rock formations, sea lions, bald eagles, and ancient petroglyphs waiting for you to explore. We also spent the night at the cape alava backcountry site which I highly recommend for the full experience.

Super gnarly. First 3 miles to cape is boardwalk, it's in pretty good condition but careful some is rotten. Did it in the rain so it was slightly slippery.The 3 miles on the beach is rough. Rocky, sandy, fallen trees and a changing tide make for an adventure. plan around tide. trail has marked, alternate options at points in case of high tide and some include rope climbing. amazing petroglyphs, wildlife (eagles, otters, tide pools) seastacks. look for round 'x' sign to mark start of next 3 miles back into woods on boardwalk to parking lot. rad in the rain in early March. bring extra socks and lunch

it was not 8.7 miles, it's about 9.2 miles, but it was awesome, make sure you get a tide table since you can't hike the beach during high tide.

This trail is easy unless you run into a bear, then it becomes moderate.

Awesome trail. Mixes in a lot of varied sightseeing... Forest, lake and streams, ocean, and rugged beach. Overnight camp in cape Alva was amazing.
