Hidden Beach is a gem!! Easy trail with some redwoods lots of fern and great air!

結構歩きごたえがあり、最後にサプライズが待っています。誰も居ない視界の開けた海。最高でした。いつまでもそこに居たい気持ちになりました。帰りは基本的に登りで少しキツイ感じ。トレッキングシューズでのハイクをお勧めします。

One of the most beautiful hikes I have ever done. The god rays created by sunlight piercing through the fog and the redwood tree branches was incredible and I captured some screensaver worthy photographs. The beach was also spectacular although a bit cold. The trail is steep but not too bad. One of the best hikes in Redwood NP and SPs in my opinion.

Good hike and we made it down to the ocean where we saw a seal swimming! Hike up is a good workout

This is a gorgeous hike but it is definitely difficult, not moderate. Going down is pretty easy but the hike back up is very steep and it’s entirely up hill. I definitely wouldn’t take young children on this. Well worth it for the gorgeous open views of the Redwoods and finishing at the ocean.

Wow! One of the best hikes in the area. This trail is actually a 4.2 mile out and back, with the latter 1.4 miles quite strenuous, but the views and magnificent terrain and ancient redwoods make it worth it. Make sure you go down to the beach at the end to ponder nature’s beauty at water’s edge.

Beautiful redwoods hike that ends at the ocean. Sign says trail ends at bridge but I crossed it with no problems. If you don't feel comfortable using the bridge, just to the side of it you can go down into the creek and up the other side.

As of August 2018 a bridge is down, so this trail is closed.

This is one of my absolute favorite hikes. The solitude of this redwood atmosphere with rain or fog is stunning. Hiking down you won't think about the return climb in store for you, which can be difficult for some folks I'm sure. Look for rabbits among the ferns, salamanders, wild irises, and succulent hens and chicks in the cliff-face when you get to the beach. If you walk the beach at low tide and explore the tide pools among the rocks, starfish, anemones and other creatures await, and I never want to leave.

The highlight of our trip to Del Norte. Best when covered in fog, it's pretty mystical with it's towering Redwoods.

We found the cove to be an added bonus, but if you are short of time or if the elevation is off-putting, I'd recommend doing the first half in the fog down to the trail sign then climbing up again.

The trade off we found is that when the trees are covered in fog the cove is too or when sunny both are.

Also be aware of any scrambling paths, we went up one to save some time and it didn't catch up to the path again so it was a fun 20 minute detour.

Gorgeous hike! The mist in the redwoods is amazing! Bridge says it’s not in use but I had a party of 6 and we all crossed and made it to the ocean just fine. Great day trip. We did the hike with a 13 and 2 year old very doable for all abilities!

This is a must to do, this is the most beautiful trail that leads down to the ocean. it is steep going down and coming back up but the walk through the Redwoods is breathtaking. as you get to the end as others have said it says bridge out but we walked across it with no problem at all and within 50 feet you're looking down at the ocean. this is a must-do

this is a great little hike to see the ocean hand if it's not foggy the river. steep up and down for less than a mile. but when you get to the Overlook the stairs to climb up are in very bad shape. regardless well worth the hike.

Fun easy trail. Great views, especially at sunset.

Fantastic hike! Loved the variety of vegetation and forest area and the beach at the end. The trail signs say it is closed but just ignore it. The trail is usable and the bridge is fine. It looked like there was a bit of a washout which makes part of the trail trickier but definitely manageable. We saw lots of children and old folk using the trail so it is usable for all ages and types. So worth the steep climb down and back for the ocean/beach at the bottom.

lots of variety in this hike. towards the end the vegetation gets very thick and s little humid then suddenly everything opens up and you are on the beach with an incredible view

Good beach views at end if you go past the broken bridge. Mud and trail washout makes conditions difficult for unaccustomed hikers closer to sea level, we encountered several people who turned around early.

We drove from Texas to hike this trail. Great setting with giant trees in a rain forest and the Pacific Ocean. The hidden beach a half mile from trail head is a bonus. Beautiful.

The trail is great until the last 1/3 of the route where it becomes narrow and overgrown with weeds and grass. The path down to the lookout is steep and has rebar sticking up so watch out! The views are mostly hidden by trees but you can hear the ocean and the sea lions. Of coarse the lookout is usually awesome pending fog and clouds. Be in shape the make the entire 9 + mile hike from the Yurok loop trailer head. It is easy turning to moderate + at the end.

Amazing and beautiful!

Honestly couldn't have asked for better, other than the state penitentiary fire department using the trail also to clear debris from a recent storm, which was a little freaky for two women. If you come to the sign and see its closed, don't stop! The bridge is deemed unsafe but i'm sure you can slide into the creek and cross it relatively easily. We took the bridge one at a time but it's wobbly.
The hike back is killer, layer up on the way down and strip to a tank top or t shirt because the hike up will challenge anyone. Pack light.

One of my favorite trails. Great combo of giant redwood trees, creeks, ferns, ocean and a good workout (heading back). The trail head is not well marked but the post is there right off 101 right in the middle of the current road repair. Make sure you enter to the right side of the trail sign.
I started at 930am, there was not a soul on the trail. When you see the “downed” bridge you are 100yards from the beach. You can easily navigate around the bridge to cross the creek; it’s worth the effort for the view at the ocean. Stayed for an hour at the ocean just soaking in the sun, solitude and the beauty...
Down slope was a bit slippery, And fairly steep in couple sections, I can see it getting dicey under wet condition - wear good hiking shoes if raining.
Amazing short trail.

Poorly maintained with numerous fallen logs and an eroding path at several portions but still beautiful hike through Pacific rainforest with ocean on the other side. A couple of amazing vistas and a fun hidden beach but the extent of the forest often chokes off your views even high up.

Hiked this April 4th. The hike was beautiful. The trek back up was a little rough but definitely manageable. One of my favorite hikes of all time. The payoff was great!

Awesome trail. Time yourself and know your limits, coming out can be tough. Amazing seeing old growth to the beach. Can’t beat.

Wonderful hike to Hidden Beach! We arrived at sunset, and we're the only people on the beach. The trail was lightly trafficked.

Amazing coastal views! Trail gets a bit narrow and slick in spots, but not bad overall. Definitely worth heading down to Hidden Beach too (towards the end of the trail, signage is clear). Make sure to listen for the barking from sea lions!

Awesome hike! I loved hiking through the beautiful redwoods and coming out at the beach. The hike back up is a bit tiring but soo worth the it!
