For Goonies fans, this is a stop well worth your time, but the Goonies aside, this is a place we would have fallen in love with anyway. GORGEOUS... More

Beautiful park. It was below freezing and only the strong survive :) There were a couple of volunteers that assisted us in finding some whales. Beautiful view of the ocean and all the monoliths.

Did the 1 1/2 mile hike...beautiful but muddy!! I came back by way of the road!! They should have a little more walkway on the roads.
