  • Area was pretty clean over all , a lot of parking space and nice picnic tables to have a quick picnic. Went on a weekday was pretty lonely and had a good time overall.

  • Very nice place, especially off-season, when the parking is not an issue. Definitely woukd recommend to go up the hill on the right. It's only a short hike (.75mile loop) but with great views both to north and south from the top.
  • This place is so good! There is little caves where you can walk trough. The top of the mountain is a wide open view to the Pacific Ocean, letting you see the waves ending on the edge of the beach. I really enjoyed this place at the end of last summer 2021. Recommend 1000%!
