"This modest climb to the seashore’s highest point offers the same spectacular views from the top, explores the less-traveled Horse and Z Ranch trails, and visits Sky Camp on the return." Read more
"The hike starts in a lush forest of Douglas fir and oak trees. You then follow the ridgeline, with views of Drakes Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The trail descends to the treeless, stark beauty of coastal bluffs. Have lunch on a tiny, idyllic beach. Then walk through wind-manicured scrub, with views of blue-rippled ocean. Head inland through a fairytale woodland of chalk-white alders, following a meandering stream. End up back at the Bear Valley Visitor Center." Read more
