Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The king range lurches thousands of feet above from the sea, creating precipitous cliffs that back directly against black-sand beaches. Small streams carve deep ravines through the coastal bluffs, providing water and oceanside campsites for beach-walking hikers. Mountain summits lord over it all. The top of King Peak (4,088'), the highest in the range, is less than 3 miles from the shore."
