    Route Description for Soda Springs Creek Hike

    The Soda Springs Creek Trail makes for an amazing day of hiking. Travel through high brush and lush coastal woodlands up to a breathtaking overlook of the dramatic coastline bound by lush headlands. Offering awe-inspiring views, the exposed route also warrants extreme conditions—expect fog and wind! We encourage you to dress in layers as insurance against changing conditions. Don’t forget to charge your camera; the sneery along this route is picture-perfect.

    Embark on your adventure along the Soda Springs Creek Hike from the trailhead off State Route 1. Setting out from here, you will be guided southeast to an intersection. Here, veer left, and you will be diverted onto the Buckeye Trail. This route will lead adventurers northwest along the mountainside decorated with chaparral shrubs and wildflowers. As you navigate the winding terrain, be sure to admire the beautiful scenery.

    You will ultimately reach the trail’s end at the Buckeye Campground. Marvel in the postcard perfect scenery of the Pacific and the bounding headlands from here. After reveling in the view, retrace your footing along the path back down to the trailhead.
