During a camping trip at Woodside Campground in Salt point State Park in July 2015, we took about a 7 mile hike through the Pygmy Forest and down to the coast of the Pacific Ocean at Salt Point. The hike starts off with some good hills before reaching the Pygmy Forest. I had been excited to see the forest but in all honesty it wasn’t quite as cool as I thought. I did really like the coastal portions with great views north and south along the coastline. We had lunch on the rocks at Salt Point before heading back to the campground. It was a really hot day and not a lot of wind and I think it’s safe to say we were all actually pretty tired by the time we got back to camp.

This was a fun hike with a good mix of forest and coastline. Highly recommend it if you’re in the Salt Point State Park.
