    Head to the right at the beginning of the trail if you want less of a challenge on the front end of the hike. Head to the left for a steeper hike, but quicker ocean view payoff.

    I like coming during the week, when it is less crowded. Gorgeous views throughout whole hike! I do the full loop which is 4.5 miles!

    hike up to skull rock; careful climbing up it – you can sit in the shade up top to rest before you turn back down.

    No dogs allowed on the trails. Also, there's a stop sign camera in the parking lot so among other things, make sure you smile!
