Experienced and moderate walkers should tackle the challenge of Cape Split Hiking Trail, a heavily forested trek with sweeping mountain vistas. The trail takes about 2-2.5 hours each way, rewarding you with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, verdant fields, and rocky jutting cliffs as you ascend. Only the most experienced walkers should attempt the side trails that lead toward the cliff, where continuous erosion may pose a safety hazard.
