Did the suggested loop. Cool views from the top over the Lagoons. Nice way to gain height quickly with plenty of trails at the top to make it a bit longer

Awesome trail I did with a complete stranger...

We took this trail counterclockwise and had lunch on Sculptured Beach. In late Sept, it was totally clear, warm and had spectacular views all the way to the Farallon Islands.

Nice hike, super easy. a couple of downed trees at the start that are a little tricky to get through but smooth sailing afterwards.

Recommend going clockwise for great views. I found this tough on a hot day. 2 water stops at campsites on the way round. Beach was lovely before the burn of the last few miles uphill.

This is a really awesome trail to run. Not too much and just enough! The first time i did it was few weeks ago and definitely had to come and do the whole thing. Went to all the way to the black top on fairfax-bolinas rd and turned back. Saw some hikers on the way in at olema and a couple hikers at the other end by fairfax-bolinas rd but other then that was just my dog and myself on the trail. Next run will be from olema to the golden gate. Love how this trails just web throughout the headlands!. Great trail overall!!!

Awesome trail for Trail Running. Coast Trail trailhead is right off Limantour Road and if you're an endurance athlete the Coast Trail literally covers almost the entire Drakes Bay portion of Point Reyes National Seashore. You could take it as far south as the Alamere Falls trailhead at the southern part of the peninsula. Soft dirt trails, awesome wood bridges and creeks, absolutely stunning coastline, amazing wildlife viewing, private secluded beaches! Truly one of the best trails in California. I ran it from beginning to Arch Rock (which sadly collapsed) and then back again for a 16 mile run.

Scenery is lost once in the trees but an enjoyable hike

This is a great trail for running- lots of varied terrain and great views. Once you get into the forest you have plenty of shade and it's just a dream run.
