Family Friendly It is short.

This area closes at dusk and you must have a Discover Pass.

Description

This trail starts at the Lime Kiln Point Loop. Follow the trail until you come to a "T" intersection. Take a right, follow the trail out to the lighthouse and then up the rocks. The trail will follow a small bluff just above the water around and back around to the lower parking lot and restrooms. The trail will eventually link you back up to that first "T" intersection. You'll see a white information board. In the middle is a silver button, if you push it you can hear what the hydrophone is picking up. This is a renowned whale watching location.

Flora & Fauna

Pines, cedars, madrone, whales, orcas, seals, sea lions, and more can be found here.
