This is a lush, shady woodland trail interrupted by spurs to points with sweeping views of the rugged forested coastline highlighted by colossal rock outcrops. This is one of the most picturesque settings of the California Coastal Trail in a developed pocket of coastal land. The area was home to the Yurok people prior to the arrival of European explorers, starting with Cabrillo and Drake in the sixteenth century. The Russians followed from Alaska in the early 1800s to hunt sea otters for their precious pelts. In the mid-1800s the discovery of gold in Northern California lured many fortune seekers to the area.
