Be prepared

Because the weather can be so variable, it's good to check the weather before heading out on trails. The best time to hike the coast's trails is during a sunny morning — but this is a rare event indeed. Most of the time you will experience a range of weather from fog to sun to clouds — all within a day, so wear layers, check the weather and be prepared for anything.
