“A nice hike to a rocky coastline filled with tide pools and endless views.”— John Shuttlesworth
Family Friendly A great place for kids to enjoy sea life in some easy to reach tide pools.
Overall, it is fun for all ages and offers some unique formations created by heavy winds and the unrelenting surge of the Pacific Ocean. Although the trail is short and easy to navigate, it does travel over very uneven ground, so attention should be paid to footing when traveling along the rocky cliffs that form this section of coastline.
