This trail felt like a hidden gem. The beach at the end is worth the hike.

Did 4 miles from sir Francis drake with my family today for Mother’s Day - possibly my new favorite hike. Beautiful hills, meadows and wildflowers. Magic. Have also done parts of the other side which is a beautiful redwood forest. Can’t wait to come back and do the whole trail together

well maintained

Went backpacking camped out at sky, the trail was pretty steep at first but hard part is in the beginning it’s pretty easy from then on.. we were only ones out there which was pretty cool watched the sunset at site 9 I think pretty dope! Definitely felt safe and for beginners doing a solo trip out here np! Would do this again

Meadow trail was very gradual and forgiving for an early climb in the trail. Sky trail was very relaxed and had great views of meadows and redwoods. Baldy Trail was overgrown with stinging nettle and poison oak. Don’t wear shorts on if you intend to go that route.

Sierra Club backpacking hike - nice and reasonably challenging

My boyfriend and I hiked this trail in the beginning of May in a 4 hours or so (including a break for lunch). For reference, we are in our 20's to 30's and go to the gym 3x a week. Aesthetically, we had a very nice time seeing all of the flowers along the way and following the river for so long. We didn't see any hikers, only 10-20 bikers, but overall it wasn't very populated. The trail is well paved and marked until you leave the bikeable portion and start "the climb". It's a bit steep and looks more like a deer trail than a hiking trail, but if you take breaks and check your gps every once and a while, I think most people will be fine. The spot it takes you to is perfect for lunch and rests on the water, but you can stop around 4 miles in when you first get to the lake too. On my garmin foretrex, we measured around 8.5ish miles RT from the Orchard Hill Samuel P Taylor Campground. Watch out for poison oak along the way. Overall, highly recommended!

Gorgeous trail. Mostly shady, lots of wonderful forest views. We did it counter clockwise which means you arrive at the beautiful meadow towards the end of the adventure. Great place for a picnic.

Very solid well kept trail. I was really impressed with the beauty. I was not able to complete the whole route but if you want to half it like I did. You can walk halfway down the beach and take the coast trail. I was shocked by how much the diversity of the ecosystem can come into play with this route. Highly suggest to take this route now since its the spring and you can see all the flowers blooming. You might catch a snake like I did.

Easy trail - some nice iris along the trail. The sign at the trail head said it was closed at 1.5 miles, but we did the whole loop and just very little mud.

Pretty busy trail, but the ocean views at the end were worth it. I wanna come backack and check all the side trails.

Very easy and kid friendly. Our 3 year old was able to walk this trail. Lots of interesting information regarding 1906 earthquake. Definitely stop by the visitor center when you’re finished.

We could see evidence of the storms, but the path was mostly clear. Our kids (10,8,6 and 3) loved it. I highly recommend it for families.

Highly recommend this hike. The trail is straight up for the first 2 miles. But on the way down take the Meadow Trail and it is an awesome view of the beach. Once you get to the top of the hill make sure you take a right and go all the way up to the highest point.

cute and very easy short loop. not really a hike, just a walking path. lots of information on the local geography.

Beautiful scenery, and a great hike. I started on the Bear valley trail, then branched onto the Mt. Wittenberg trail, to Z ranch trail, then the Horse trail onto the Sky camp trail, to Woodward valley trail to the Coast trail, and then finished back on the Bear valley trail for a 16 mile loop. I saw Deer, a jack rabbit, snakes, lizards, butterflies, dragonflies, many birds and flowers and a lot of beautiful trees. Walking along the coast and having ocean views was amazing. Sculpture beach is a really cool place for lunch! All in all it’s a great hike.

It was a beautiful view and very relaxing place to walk. I recommended to everyone.

Amazing trail, but definitely would do this in reverse direction. Climb right at start and mostly shaded vs steep climb at the end.

Moderate trail. Great for having a meal or rest at the beach. Trails are well marked.

Knocked this one out in a day. Scenery was beautiful - the trail was well-marked and well maintained.

The recent storms definitely had a negative impact on the trail. I was baby wearing so only made it one mile before downed trees made me turn back. Still, the trail is beautiful.

beautiful river, lake, water falls and a gorgeous view of the ocean

Just completed this one with a couple friends 3-21 - 3-23. We had a lot of fun. We didn't do the exact trail on here but still ended up clocking about 28.5 miles over 3 days. Wildcat is an awesome campground. Stayed at site 5 and it was pretty solid. Good privacy and space for a few tents. Make sure you get a fire permit at the visitor center so you can get a fire going on the beach, just be aware of the tides. We also day hiked to Alamere Falls (5 miles trip) and it was awesome. The falls are raging right now. Next day we packed up and headed out to Coast camp. We stayed at site 12 and it seemed pretty cool. It ended up raining basically the entire day so spent most of the day in tents. Seemed like a cool campground but didn't get to enjoy it much. The hiking was good. It's a pretty steady hike and not that hard. I'd say a great trip for a beginner backpacker. There's some elevation but nothing that hard to handle. A lot of mud on the trails right now and be aware of poison oak. Overall, super enjoyable. I'd love to do this again with better weather and take advantage of the fires on the beach, that's an awesome perk in this area.

Incredible hike. Beautiful, old Douglas fir forest. Some trees more than 5 ft in diameter, 300+ years old. So rare in the Bay Area: I hiked for 2.5 hours and saw no other people. I will definitely be back!

Amazing trail, if you want to see a little bit of everything. As described Alamere Falls is the only busy part. I did this as a day hike, counter-clockwise so as to end going downhill. Lots of downed trees on the southern part of trail.
