5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

Went hiking here and was pleasantly surprised. Quiet place with nice trails. The waterfall at the end is pretty cool.

“Nice to meet you!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Excellent short hike to a simple, yet pristine Limekiln waterfall. Actually was here 11-25-2012 with a large hiking group and ran into my future wife at the trailhead.

“Wonderful hikes with no crowds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

The hikes are beautiful and best yet... Peaceful! This was one of my favorite stops along PCH. Some of the other parks were so crowded but there was hardly anyone here. The hikes aren't too long so you can be outdoors for an hour or so without being totally exhausted. The lime kilns are amazing and they have a waterfall to hike too as well!

“Amazing!! A must see...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

One of my most favorite places. Beautiful creek runs into the ocean. Just take a drive down Hwy 1 and you will see some of the most beautiful places on earth. ( if the sun is out).

“Beautiful hikes through the redwoods, plus beach access and camping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

A hiking trail winds up through the redwood forest to the huge old lime kilns. I love this trail. There is also another trail leading to a waterfall. What a beautiful forest of redwood trees this is. You can also walk down to hang out on the beach, and there is camping here, in the redwoods.
