The trail can be faint and more like a cattle path, which isn't ideal for running.
From the junction with the Estero
trail, head south on a gentle downhill, generally on a ridge to the point. The last section of the trail seems more like a cattle trail than a human trail, but persevere - this is a favorite vantage point for spotting seabirds, whales and sea lions. Many visitors enjoy having a picnic on the bluff of Drakes Head. Note: bikes are allowed on this trail.
Flora & Fauna
Overlook is a good place for spotting migrating whales. Sea lions, white pelicans, egrets, other seabirds.
