Description

This trail is a crowd pleaser! Short and sweet, it rolls atop 500ft. cliffs, taking in amazing coastline views. The trail is named for a rock outcrop that looks a bit like a chimney. Springtime (April and May) is wonderful time here for wildflowers.

Additionally, some of the best whale watching can be done from here- look for the spouts from grey whales making their way from Alaska to Baja, Mexico (January to May). Elephant seals can often be spotted lounging on the beaches below.

This easy trail is often foggy and windy, but on clear days the Farallon Islands are visible about 20 miles off the coast.
