A beautiful hike with ocean views.

The trail is an easy 3.7 miles along the coastline near Mavericks. There are ocean views all along the trail is a great for young kids and dogs.  There is no shade along the trail, so plan accordingly. It's great for jogging or getting in a quick workout.

The parking lot can fill up quickly, especially in the afternoons. But, there is additional parking a little ways down the road.
