“A trail through lush old-growth forest leading to sweeping views of the Pacific coast.”— Sarah Baker
Family Friendly The tail is well-maintained for the first 1.5 miles. This section is well graded with minimal obstacles and can be taken as an easy stroll. The lush forest with large trees is enjoyable for all ages.
After the overlook, the trail condition deteriorates. The trail can be muddy with many slippery tree roots and puddles, especially after a rain. Eventually, views open to the south as the trail skirts the southern cliffs of Cape Lookout, with spectacular views down the coast. Rewarding views open up out to the Pacific Ocean once you reach the end of the Cape.
