Glad we found this listing for Hobbit Beach here on TA; it doesn't seem to be promoted as much as other places along this stretch of 101, but it's a really lovely beach, not overly crowded, with little waterfalls, tide pools, and some seriously weird...More

As someone who's not into hiking, this is an easy trek to a nice beach. It's a stroll through the woods until you get to the beach. The way back is also very easy and even someone not fit should be able to handle it....More

This is a beautiful trail but steep in spots. Not wheelchair or stroller friendly. It leads through a moss covered forest to a beautiful beach. Going down wasn't bad but coming up is hard on the knees. There is no bathroom in the vicinity, closest...More

I totally enjoyed this trek. The trailhead comes on you suddenly when your driving, so know the general area so you'll be ready for it. Parking area is small. Trail is 1/2 mi. to a wonderful cove. Trail is filled with roots so watch your...More

Not enough parking but go in the early evening to enjoy fabulous sunsets on a great beach that goes for miles.

This is a lovely trail that winds through the forest for about 1/2 mile and ends up at a beautiful, walkable beach. Hobbits would love it!
