On a sunny day. Easy walk to the main view point then you can explore a few more interesting trails and find more viewpoints. Well worth the drive out.

Beautiful park in a really nice neighborhood. Lots of trails to enjoy. There was two bald eagles right at the lighthouse when I was there in January. Wasn't to busy so peace and quiet :-)

Parking lot is a nightmare on the weekends. Park is really nice and there seems to be a decent amount of trails to the water
