Lovely hike 10 miles south of McWay Falls [ entrance to the left]. $10 parking fee. Lots of camp ground by the creek. Rest room maintenance is very average. Falls hike is a little short of 2 miles amidst redwoods and either beside or on the creek. There are not too many signs in the trail, but the path is pretty self- descriptive. Loved walking over logs and cascaded waterfalls. The water is crystal clear. The falls are simply beautiful. Nothing can compare with a lovely waterfall hike amidst the redwoods in my lovely coastal California. Close to the parking lot there is access to the ocean (below the bridge). Quite smelly with dead fish lying about (perhaps since we visited during the holidays and the campgrounds were saturated. The ocean is a lovely turquoise blue.
Tip: Walking on water is many times the ONLY option (and the fun one! who would want to miss that! :-) ) Either carry water proof shoes of regular slip-ons. The hike is not slippery or difficult and can be done with regular slip-ons ( i wore my crocs sandals).

Easy hikes to both the falls and kilns. Ground soft and spongy with lots of little river crossings. Impressive falls with beautiful pool at bottom. Beach attached to park also, with awesome views.

We stopped at Limekiln State Park on our drive along the Coast. Its a pretty state park with a campground and nice beach area.

Note: The park now is privately run. We have an annual state park pass which is supposed to be good for the state parks; this park does not accept it.

Parking lot is small and limited to how many people so we were lucky someone was leaving. Beautiful trail, creek and waterfall. Nice easy hike that's not too difficult.

We went to see whales which was impossible given the rough seas, but the park is very nice and well maintained. We did go down a trail, got the name of a tree we had been wondering about and got to see an incredible bird show out on the water.
