The Dana Point Headlands Trail is an easy hike from the Nature Interpretive Center in Dana Point, CA. To the end of the trail is roughly 10 minutes (or 20 minutes roundtrip). The trail is lined wire rope and there are plenty of benches for viewing the wildlife and sunsets. Depending on the time of year, look out for whales and dolphins.
We enjoyed this hike for its stunning views. It’s not much of a work-out, but if you’re looking for a scenic walk along the Orange County coast, this trail is for you. Adjacent to the trail, Strands is a beautiful beach to enjoy during the summertime.
For more of a work-out, we took the Dana Point Headlands Trail to Dana Strand Road, which turns into Selva Road. Then, we took the Strands path to Pacific Coast Highway, made a right, and continued back to the Dana Point Nature Interpretative Center. This entire loop took us about 35 minutes to walk.
Total Distance: 2-4 Miles (round trip)
