Hike 32: Shelter Cove to Horse Mountain Creek

Shelter Cove to Horse Mountain Creek

Shelter Cove to Horse Mountain Creek

The Horse Mountain Creek Trail is the easiest trail connection between the King Crest and the ocean. Unfortunately, nearly all the potential views are obscured by trees, but this means the ascent is shaded and cool. This is a demanding hike; on top of being long, it includes four miles of difficult beach walking.
