It was a beautiful spot to look out and see Crescent City, but I sort of felt like it's an ignored area. It feels run down, not rustic. It needs a little TLC because the view is beautiful.

It was a nice stroll to the end with nice chats with local fisherman and photo ops of the nearby lighthouse.

My husband went for an early morning walk & really enjoyed the view. He drove out with me later so I could see it also. Can't get enough of just soaking up the gorgeous scenery all around us. Love Crescent City.

If you like to walk out over water here is a great place to do it. Take a coat because it is always windy.

It is a great walk and many people throw out their own crab pots here. It's pretty, you need to bring a picnic and there is no where to really sit down. There are plenty of crabs to gow around. After you catch them you...More
