    This trail is a moderately rated hiking route that traces the dramatic Pacific shoreline exposing amazing views of the ocean. Wander beneath the tree canopy of towering redwoods navigate the rocky and rootbound terrain. As this route is located near the ocean, it often sees extreme weather conditions, so we encourage you to check the forecast and prepare accordingly. Dressing in layers is highly recommended!

The initial segment of the route is steep, guiding adventurers up a set of tightly wound switchbacks to the top of the coastal cliffs. Minding your footing on the terrain, the path will continue to gradually climb, passing the DeMartin Campground. At this point, the route will yet again demand the navigation of switchbacks before the terrain reaches a plateau.
