“This is an enjoyable way to access the coast with views along the route.”— Megan W
You soon arrive at Sky Camp where permitted backpackers can overnight. Otherwise there are restrooms and water here. Continue on the Sky trail along gently rolling terrain through pleasant forest. The trail begins to descend in earnest with views of the entire coast opening up. Look for the Farallon Islands far out to sea on clear days.
The final stretch of the Sky Trail zig zags more steeply down the hillside bluffs, and almost to the beach. The Sky trail ends at the junction with the Coast Trail - North.
