Beautiful views of coast with free parking for 30 minutes. The trail leading to the tide pools was so hot that my dog started to shuffle his paws and he tried to lay down. At 100 pounds we couldn't carry him to beach so we carried him off the hot sand quickly. It's a beautiful stop for pictures and there... More

Such a great place to walk! The views are spectacular. Park the car, take a water bottle and stroll. Watch your footing. Take your camera.

This is a lovely trail that you can overlook Lunada bay. The vistas are spectacular. On the back side to the mountains you can see wonderful houses. This place may be heaven. I recommend this place for everybody who want to enjoy the nature.

It was lovely to walk in this beautiful park with the ocean vistas, boats, fishermen, and the beautiful Mariner's Church along the road.

Bring your own shade, water, camera, and go potty before you hike! 😉 There's a lot to see and explore, and there aren't many people sharing the paths. Early morning and before sunset are great times for cooler weather and photography.

While visiting our daughter who attends college in LA, we decided to hike this park on a Saturday. 7 miles of trails that were easy to moderate. Some go along the cliffs and give you awesome views of the ocean and surrounding hillsides. Some bring you down to the tidal pools at the base of the cliffs where you can... More

The park is a nice hidden gem. Gorgeous views especially at sunset. It's close to Wayfarers chapel and Pointe Vincent lighthouse so you can walk over to them. Good place to visit to take beautiful photos, walk along the cliffs, and/or explore trails. If you're looking for few hours to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city,... More

Great scenic spot for sunset. Grey whales in the late fall. A perfect spot for a walk with your dog: poopie bags supplied here. Lots of places for a picnic. Self-guided nature hike with identification placards for shoreline plants.
