We took each trail we could to hike every rock formation and back to Rim Trail for a good 4.4 mile hike. Always happy climbing rocks an hiking.

Nice easy trail with great views. We took a lot of forks off the main trail to checkout some lookouts and to hike to the beach. We even saw a few seals!

Beautiful. From the parking area you can go either left or right both ways offer something special. The beach area is gorgeous and there is a large rock that people climb to the top for additional views! I do believe this is clothing optional beach as I have often seen people stripping down. This is one of my favorite local spots that keeps me coming back several times a year!

Short loop trail that offers amazing views of Trinidad all along the way. Benches with views of the ocean throughout! Very easy for sure just make sure you are careful of the brush as there is some poison oak mixed in. If you stay on the trail you should be fine. Gorgeous

They have since moved the lighthouse down the road to by the pier. It’s not much of a trail just a bunch of stairs down to the beach but Trinidad’s beaches are beautiful.

Lovely, small beach. Lots of cool rocks. would like to explore the trail or hills leading to the beach though. did not take the scenic route.

My friend visiting the area said this beach was straight out of a Lovecraftian novel. Definitely spooky, but beautiful. Great place to chill and make art in the sand. Water looks dark.

Steep hike down with no clear path at the end, but worth the effort. Wonderful beach views and morning tide pools at the bottom.

Beautiful walk down to Agate Beach. Agates are all over. Just watch the tide

Very pretty trail, but did not go all the way through. Parts of it were closed. The parts that we did get to see were very pretty with lots of adorable banana slugs and the sound of seals.

Short easy trail, but the views are amazing!

Nice short hike with views of the ocean, but nothing amazing. Can't see the headlight though...

Enjoyable simple trail that ends up at the beach near Trinidad, Took a few photos but not of the beach. I got distracted throwing a stick in the surf for my lab, Brook,... Nice little stream and a couple of bridges. Way too many spur trails along the way, Found two couples a bit lost due to the confusing spurs along the trail.

Nice little trail with some old. slightly dangerous steep stairs. I wouldn't rate this one easy simply because of the stairs. I noticed most people including that were there and one in the few reviews here didn't go down them. Beautiful little town with some nice little trails. Awesome views!

Nice little trail with some great views. Surprising amount of cars and lack of people on the trail. Quite a few spurs off in every direction with people taking alternate routes away from the main trail. heard kids playing off in the trees in several places. Nice ocean views off some of the spurs!

Easy walk I assume. The memorial is under some construction but there were people sitting near the edge so I couldn't get a good picture. We drove from the memorial to the beach parking lot, then hiked to the lighthouse.

A little incline at the beginning. Beautiful scenic views of the waves. The lighthouse isn't visible except for the very top. Bummer that there's lots of brush in the way. Loved that there's lots of benches for viewing. Wish the lighthouse was easier to see

What a great trail!! The entire thing and all the little trails that shoot off of it lead to amazing ocean views. Total miles for us was 4.2. Not many ppl since it’s October. Two thumbs up!

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.

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.

This was an absolutely beautiful trail!!! We walked along the rim trail and the looking rock as well. This trail and rim trail are very wheelchair accessible. We were blessed with a very clear day with no fog or wind and there are so many beautiful places to view. Very impressed and will be back again!
