  • Pretty views. Could use a little signage at the top of the hill.
  • Fantastic location to spend a day just sitting and lounging. It appears too be family friendly but keep a close eye on your younger children.

  • Spectacular ocean views and sea breezes.
  • Beautiful place by the sea with very good view. Trail from parking lot is somewhat long but with good views.
