"This section of the California Coastal Trail (in an outlying section of Redwood National Park) begins at a sandy beach and ends at an overlook with a fine coastal view. Along the way, you pass through lush coastal vegetation well watered by several small rivulets. Picnic areas at the beginning and end offer the opportunity for combining the hike with a picnic lunch—a fine way to spend a few hours on the North Coast." Read more

A fabulous bike ride! - you get right next to some massive trees - I put my bike inside of one with a burned out center - glimpses of the ocean and NO CARS! Plus a paved path part of the way. I rode on a summer Friday afternoon/eve and didn't see anyone else on the trail. I rode from the north trail head and as a beginner I could have done without lugging my 33 pound bike up the big hill - I would recommend using the southern trail head and doing an out and back ride. Also I rode back on highway 101 which wasn't much fun as it is a very narrow, steep and curvy section without much shoulder so the cars are right next to you. The bike trail ridden from the southern trail head though is a carefree romp through beautiful scenery suitable for anyone.
