The Fisk Mill Cove trails are overgrown and should be avoided IMHO, but between Gerstle Cove and Stump Beach are well-maintained and spectacular. Especially during the spring wildflower season.

One of the most beautiful coastal hikes in California in my opinion. Very easy 1 mile hike from Salt point to stump beach. $8 dollar parking fee at Salt point. Bring a windbreaker and snacks.

This is one out of only two places in California where it is allowed to pick wild mushrooms. Obviously, mushrooms could be poisonous and you need to know what you're doing!
