Points of Interest

1. Parking Lot

Start off on your steep descent down switchbacks towards the coast. Unfortunately it took me a while to get a strong gps signal so the track doesn't officially start here in the guide but there is only one trail so just follow the one you see leading down switchbacks out of the parking lot.

2. Giant Downed Trees

When you pass through this downed tree you'll have a good perspective of just how massive old growth doug firs can get.

3. Hart's Cove Views

When you pop out of the woods you'll be greated to sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and Hart's Cove below to the left of you. Walk down the path to get a different perspective. From here simply hike back the same way you came!
