“Nature at It's Finest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

What a hidden treasure. Millions of Monarchs clustering together amongst the tree leaves. A local resident was there to provide answers to most questions. Easy trail and hike to center where the butterflies migrate. Tranquil area and visitors with cameras although not overly populated with visitors. A MUST SEE!

“monarch buttwedly pit stop on winter season”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

if you want to see the monarch butterfly on winter this is the place and its tons of them.

the place offer a good quiet hiking place with a view of the beach and cliffs of the pacific coast. you can hangout at the beach as well and picnic at your hearts content. it is safe and have a good street parking neighborhood.

bring your camera and you will not be dissapointed. this place is for nature lovers. one there is no restroom on the place.

“Totally amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

This is one of those places I'm hesitant to review because I don't want it to become more crowded. It is best to go on a weekday in the mid-morning.
