Moderate hike up and down, and parking tough on a holiday weekend, but the hike was worth the view. Beautiful vista with sea stacks. To really enjoy, need to be able to climb over logs.

Another favorite places/hikes. The trail to Second Beach is a fairly easy trail for hiking. It take you down to Second Beach which is fantastic. This is a must visit!

We didn't get to spend as much time here as I hope (it hailed twice the day we went here), so I didn't get to explore as much as I'd like, but it was a beautiful short hike to an equally beautiful beach.

A great find! Limited parking at the trailhead but understandably has overflow parking nearby. There is basic portable toilets at the trailhead. A straightforward undulating 1 mile walk on a good, well-demarcated path through the beautiful wood. Relatively steep inclines at either end, with steps...More

We saw gray whales just off the beach. A lot of steps to get to the beach. Good beach for walking. Good place for the sunset.
