Description

From the trailhead, follow the path uphill through coastal scrub. As you run along the bluffs, keep an eye on the ocean where you might see whales or seals. There are fine views of Montana Beach to the south.

Poison oak is abundant along the trail, so watch your step. Fog is common on spring and summer mornings.

Flora & Fauna

You can find wildflowers along the trail nearly year-round. Watch out for poison oak.
