The Ragged Point Cliffside Trail is the perfect hike on Highway 1. The payoff for those who tackle this trail is big: a black sand beach and the base of the 300-foot Black Swift Falls seasonal waterfall! At a distance of just 0.8 miles, this moderately strenuous trail is best for experienced hikers wearing good shoes. Dogs are allowed on the trail, but only if they’re kept on-leash. The trail is easily accessible from Ragged Point Inn, just off Highway 1, and offers unparalleled glimpses of this area’s coastal mountains and wildlife.
