There are so many trails to choose from and the views are amazing. We hiked down to the beach at flat rock and it was so worth the effort. Easy parking and not that crowded.

Absolutely gorgeous beach, hiking trails and fantastic views....definitely a must see! Worth the $12 parking fee. Bring plenty of water if you're interested in hiking trails.

The hike from the top of the cliffs to the beach was so gorgeous! We had a beautiful day and even though there were tons of people around it never seemed crowded to us. So worth the drive!

TPSR is a great place for a hike. There is parking (paid) within the park but there is free parking along the ocean road leading up to the entrance. My favorite hike is to start at the entrance, up to the visitor center and down the beach trail. Then back to the start along the beach. The views from all parts of the hike are fantastic. There is also the option of driving to the top of the hill and parking for those with limited mobility. Overall, this is one of the nicest hikes along the CA coast.
