It's hard to find good 1-2 hour hikes on the PCH (most of the good ones are longer). This is a good shorter one. The tafoni are really interesting and worth seeing.

Beautiful campground set in the redwoods. Lots of space between campgrounds. Flush toilets but no showers. At night you could hear the waves.

A state park which offers a lot of variety, hiking in the forest, beaches, diving and great views. Well known for its views and wonderful ocean coves and its pygmy forest. Fair warning: to see the pygmy forest you have to climb two miles uphill,...More
