If you like to hike this is a great place to hike for the views at the end on Rams Head. It is a hot area with with a lot of cactus but once you get higher on hill the winds are wonderful and refreshing.

Watch for the cairns at the beginning. It is not easy to find the beginning. Come down the path to the beach and walk all the way to the left (looking at the water). You see a cairn out in the water and meander along...More

Great hike, very scenic. Wear good shoes, very rocky. We climbed all of the way to the top. Great photo opportunities. Can get very warm at the bottom, try not to go during the hottest time of day.
