The Scorpion Bay to Cavern Point Loop is a 2.1 mile hike on Santa Cruz Island in Channel Islands National Park. The hike is beautiful with amazing coastal views and vast, open landscapes.

This short trail is a staple and a must-do for Santa Cruz Island. Watch for dolphins, seals, sea lions, whales and otters off the coast. This is a great hike for sunset. In early February, the tail end of whale migration season, you may be able to see pods of whales passing by! On land, you'll see plenty of incredible birds and the occasional island fox. After rains, parts of the trail can be muddy.
