The Coast Ridge Road to Terrace Creek Trail is an 8 mile hike featuring amazing ocean views and rolling hills and bluffs as far as the eye can see.

This winding path takes you high above the ocean and some wooded areas provide shade along the way. Dogs are allowed on this trail but must be kept on leash. The trail is open year-round but can be a bit muddy after heavy rains. 

Turn off of Cabrillo Highway onto Coast Ridge Road, park, and head up!
