Go at high tide to see the phenomenal Thor's Well, and if you want to see the water spouting out of the geyser. It's such a wonder!

Easy drive up to the lookout point and only a short hike around for heavenly views! Be sure to hike over to the CCC-built dwelling for more breathtaking scenery.

A relatively easy hike for anyone who hikes. IF you are badly out of shape take the car up the road.
