  • 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. There are cliffs, ledges and jagged rock everywhere along the coast. Also, the two main hiking trails from the parking lot are easy walks and they both present awesome views of the area.
  • One of the most beautiful places I have been able to experience !
  • 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.
