Description

Start from the Humbug Mountain State Park campground or trailhead parking lot. You'll immediately start the steep climb surrounded by ferns and trickling water. Sometimes the water or some fallen trees will give you a few obstacles on the trail. The summit doesn't offer much for views, but you can stop to watch the waves crash into the beach and rocks below the western route. Extend the hike slightly by hiking through the campground to the sandy beach or by heading several miles up the old Highway 101 (crumbling pavement).
