Cardiac Hill

Fort Ross, California

Cardiac Hill Professional Review and Guide

"This trail has two parts. The first is an easy walk across the bluffs to grand views of the coast. Then at the edge of the bluff is a steep, challenging trail down to an isolated, rocky beach 200 feet below. This is a favorite spot for adventurous divers during abalone season. As its name implies, this is not a trail for the casual hiker. In recent years rangers have had to rescue several people who became exhausted or fell and suffered injuries on the climb. Don’t attempt this descent unless you are in excellent physical condition and are wearing good hiking boots. A sturdy hiking staff may come in handy as you descend the steepest parts of the trail."
