Hike the Salt Point Trail

3 Miles Round Trip - 100 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Salt Point Trail South Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Josiah Roe

Coastal meadows and wildflowers meet windswept cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

There are numerous points at which you can enter the trail from Highway 1, but on the north it begins as the Salt Point / Stump Beach Parking area and proceeds 1.2 miles to the Visitor Center (and south entrance) at the Gerstle Cove State Marine area, one of the first underwater state parks in California. From there you can follow the road farther south till it turns back into a trail out to Gerstle Point, though this isn't official part of Salt Point Trail.

Not “dog friendly” at all. No dogs allowed

We wanted to enjoy this hike, it seemed to fit the bill perfectly, but we were misled by the “dog friendly” tag on the description here. Actually dogs are not allowed at all & we were turned away by a ranger.
