“This former section of Highway 1 is now a popular multi-use trail with amazing views.”— Miguel Vieira
From the parking lot, take a wide, paved trail west toward the ocean, through the coastal hills. You'll soon be rewarded with dramatic views of the Pacific Ocean - on a clear day you can the Farallon Islands and Point Reyes.
Once the trail is above the ocean bluffs, look for pelicans and cormorants flying along the coast and seals and whales out in the water.
There are several interpretive signs and benches along the way to help you appreciate the views.
Stop at any time or continue to the south parking lot to return the way you came.
