WARNING! POISON OAK! (2 * if you don't like poison oak, but 5 * if you don't mind it) The Coast Trail is well-maintained and beautiful, but the trail down to Alamere Falls is not maintained, steep, and has poison oak growing across it. This is OK if you're not sensitive or if you don't mind carefully washing all your hiking clothes afterward, but it's a real hassle if you're not prepared. Fortunately we had long pants and neither of us is particularly sensitive, but I had to spend an afternoon cleaning gear because of it. That being said, the hike itself is gorgeous, and the beach below beautiful Alamere falls is a great place to relax.
The numerous snags & really hot weather make this trail a better choice for late spring & a real challenge. It is not an easy trail as the Mendocino National Forest would have you believe. This trail would be more enjoyable if it was better maintained & snag free. The end is worth the trek.
