You need to get a permit at the visitor center to access the area. We got there at 8:45 and several people were waiting in line but there was plenty to go around.

Rarely do you get a simple hike with these sort of views!! The hike was easy and we only saw 4 other groups/couples on the trail.

A can't miss if you plan to hike somewhere in the redwood forest!!

An absolutely breathtaking walk on low tide. Sea Anemones and Star Fish all around the exposed rocks. Beautiful!!!!!!

Did this hike solo and early in the morning. It was tricky for an amateur hiker at the very top as you have to climb a rope and have some kind of ability to scramble up a rock. It was well worth it though, even though the fog mostly hid the coastline. I would love to come back on a clear day. I'll definitely do this hike again. I would not advise bringing dogs or small kids that must be carried in a pack due to the relatively tricky climb at the very top.

Starts out paved, then splits and you have the option of a lovely wooded dirt trail or staying on the paved road. Gorgeous views across the ocean.

Loved this hike. Really great views from Wedding Rock and saw some sea lions in the surf belong.

Really pretty hike. Saw some sea lions.

Just completed this trail today. Was marveled by the misty mountainside and serene coastline. Saw some sea lions. Easy hike.
