This was a very pleasant, fairly easy hike through wooded forest with gorgeous views of the ocean. Highly recommend. Don't need hiking poles here. We even saw a deer on the path.

It'll cost $5 to get in, and the car line to get in may take you a while (especially on a weekend), but it's worth it for sure. 2 main parking / lookout / beach areas. Make sure you visit both. I think one of...More
