If a naturalist ( Fri & Sat @ 10 am) is giving a hour long hike it is terrific. We only hiked to the light house today but will do entire loop this week. Has a parking lot... More

Well maintained trail that looped out to the lighthouse. Beautiful views it was breath taking. Half the walk is shaded in the forest (with views of the ocean) and the other half is in the sun. We went on a very warm day so the shaded part was lovely. Lots of benches and viewpoints if you wanted to stop and... More

So beautiful. We are fortunate to have this area in our country. Many places to access the trail. We walked out to the lighthouse with age ranges of 6 -65 and we all loved it.

We stayed in Ukee for a week and did the Lighthouse walk twice and the Big Beach walk once. Honestly, you could do these walks everyday and never be bored. Incredible ocean vistas greet you at every turn. All of us on the walk (8) thought the wintertime would be an awesome time to do the Lighthouse walk. The big... More

A very well maintained trail. Accessible by people with mild mobility concerns. Spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. Accessible from the town.

Trails are great. Most are easy access and walking trails, others more challenging with steep terrain

I was skeptical about hiking this but it turned out well worth it. Great vantage points of the coast, rocks/driftwood up close. Nice forested parts, very thick at some points with a small lighthouse with an interesting shipwreck story attached.

The trail itself is in excellent condition, but it is definitely more of a walking path than a hiking trail. Can very easily be done in a couple of hours by most people. Starting from the lighthouse all the way to the rocky bluffs and returning to the hwy via the ancient cedars. I locked my bike up at the... More
