The Ragged Point Cliffside Trail begins behind the resort gift shop of the Ragged Point Inn. This trail will bring you down switchbacks to a black sand beach with rigid coastlines.
Just north of Ragged Point is the Ragged Point Beach. It is accessible by hiking a narrow hidden trails that starts along Highway 1. Keep an eye out for the Private Property sign at the trailhead. Be aware of vegetation and a narrow pathway. The journey is worth it as you'll likely have this beach all to yourself.
