1.2 miles 300 ft gain  - Point-to-Point Trail

Added by Josiah Roe

Fantastic views of the Northern California coastline including Muir Beach and Slide Ranch.

The Owl Trail runs between Slide Ranch and the Muir Beach Overlook and is a great way to take in the breathtaking views, flora and fauna of the Northern California coast. 

The easiest way to access the trail is to park at the Muir Beach Overlook and to take the trail down to Slide Ranch and then back.
