Beautiful trail! It can be challenging, but so fun. The trees are amazing and the mountain and ocean views are stellar. Bring extra water, sunscreen, a hat, and layers of clothing as you will most likely be faced with both cool and warm temperatures. If you get an early start, which I totally recommend, the morning fog is enchanting.

"This hike explores the coastal ridges below Pantoll offering great views when it is clear. Good spring flowers on Heather Cutoff Trail. May be overgrown, bicycles likely."
