Gorgeous 30 minute circular route amongst wildflower meadow over the coastline. Lovely place to stop on a highway 1 Roadtrip.

Beautiful State Park with the best of wild flower season around the Bay Area! Found atleast 15 varieties of blossoms. This and added to a mystical Redwood section, with flowing stream that you come across every now, this park has so much to offer in such a short hike. Would love to visit this place again and again and still feel like I haven't seen it all..
This is a beautiful park! I loved the trails especially along the ocean. I didn't get very far on the non ocean side but there were a ton of cacti, it was nice and unexpected. I did find a tick on myself so be careful. The only downfall is parking on the side of the road, it can get busy especially if your trying to cross. Nice thing is you don't have to pay. We would definitely come back. And for families, it is a nice outing and there are short trails. Keep in mind it is not stroller friendly and dogs are not allowed.
