A bluff hike on the Monterey coast.
The trail skirts low bluffs, just 50 feet above the water, and the sea lions rest on the rocks just offshore. (They feed in the morning, haul out in midday.) You can hike out to Soberanes Point, down to a sandy beach for a picnic, or up a side trail to a small peak. In June the hills should blaze with golden yarrow. Watch for poison oak. The signed trailhead is on Highway 1, 6.9 miles south of the stoplight at Rio Road, on the south edge of Carmel. There's parking in two pullouts.
