  • Really cool spot just a short hike in from Hwy 1. Definitely take the time to go explore. The tunnel is awesome and the rocks at the end of the trail are a great place to chill and watch the ocean
  • Nice spot! #iloveitontop
  • Beautiful spot to watch the waves crashing against the rocks. An otter was hanging out with us riding the waves. Park on the side of the road, but be very careful of traffic. The trail down is short but steep.
  • Lovely place! please be aware of the warning signs and the waves.
  • Such Cool history! Worth the short hike !
