Shell Beach Bluff Trail

The Shell Beach Bluff Trail is an easy, wheelchair-accessible paved trail that overlooks a scenic cove. A connected trail, the Ontario Ridge Trail, is a rugged and steep trail that crosses a 700-foot hill above the bluff. The two trails combined are 2.8-mile loop with over 675 feet of elevation change and a rewarding spectacular ocean view. For those hiking the full loop, parking is available at the Cave Landing and it is preferred to end the hike with the descending slope heading east down the Shell Beach Bluff Trail.
