  • As per title. Worth it if you have a little time and desire to do tracking and a little stroll along a very long beach. Convenient parking. Getting on the road (as far as you can) of the military base you can take pictures with nice views (especially in early morning and at dusk) Council.

  • It's a unique experience along the coast highway. We were there on Wednesday morning, queued on 9:45, the park ranger closed the gate as soon as no more car waiting , so you don't wanna have the traffic jam. It's the guided tour by two volunteers. They divided us into two groups of around 13 of each. Slowly walking towards the top with experienced stories shared with us. They will charge $12 per person after the tour, which I think it's lowest price for a nice guided tour. You also have the chance to buy some souvenir on the top. They will escort everyone out together after 2 and half hour tour.
  • A must stop to for some of the most beautiful spots on the CA shores. Just hope that on your way up someone's not going down!
  • Great spot to soak in the scenery and experience the Pacific.
  • I love this rock! Its a magical place. Highly recommended.
  • An outstanding (literally) destination, worth the additional physical and organizational effort to access. Rich history, architecture, and breathtaking land/seascapes. A unique location with dedicated and knowledgeable volunteers. There really is nothing like it.
