This is the other end of a very long (11 miles?) Trail that starts from Big Basin HQ. Certainly not for casual hikers. That's why we just drove up to Waddell Creek on CA-1 and hiked backwards from Waddell Creek - actually, from Rancho Del Oso across the hiway, took the "Skyline to the Sea Trail" and did the trail in reverse. Well, for a few miles only. Then we turned around and hiked back up to the beach and played frisbee. My friends and I are considering doing the complete trail sometime.
