“A trail through lush old-growth forest leading to sweeping views of the Pacific coast.”— Sarah Baker
After the overlook, the trail condition deteriorates. The trail can be muddy with many slippery tree roots and puddles, especially after a rain. Eventually, views open to the south as the trail skirts the southern cliffs of Cape Lookout, with spectacular views down the coast. Rewarding views open up out to the Pacific Ocean once you reach the end of the Cape.
