  • Can u say Jurassic Park lol. Really cool and great to see
  • Amazing place, besure to bring water proof shoes for better enjoyment
  • My GPS was way off on this, the entrance is south of where it appears on the map. Make sure you bring extra shoes and socks. You can go quite a ways balancing on logs but we eventually just gave up & walked through the water. Most people turned back long before the point that we did. Trust me, it’s worth getting your feet wet, we went in December and I didn’t think it was that cold. The road isn’t too bad, very windy, some pots holes and some bigger puddles. It was pretty busy, probably packed in the summer. Be sure to stop at Gold Bluffs on your way out!
  • Great place to explore. Be prepared to get your shoes wet here. And your car will get a bit muddy in order to reach here.
  • great nature trail plus ocean views , be careful not to feed or engage with the wild animals there
