First time doing this hike and it was really nice. Started at about 10:30 am on a Saturday. Weren’t many people on the way in, but it became much more crowded on the way out. Beautiful views of the cove at the end. Heard a lot of sea lions. Saw lots of different mushrooms. Not muddy at all. All down hill on the way in and uphill on the way out. Moderate hike, good workout.★ ★ ★ ★
Mid-July walk - perfect time to go as the weather is dry. We got there early to beat the crowds - the place is very popular - and were treated to great views and watched the sea lions on the rocks. Fog rolled in as we left (about 10 a.m.) covering things for the large number of late arriving throngs we saw as we returned on the trail. The trail itself has some really large hemlocks (2nd or 3rd growth?) I can only imagine what the old growth was like.★ ★ ★ ★
