  • We spent about 2 1/2 hours walking back on the trail to the wooden walkway around the Pygmy Forest. The Ocean part of the park is more gratifying.  more »
  • great views on the ocean and hills. easy to find off of highway 1 and a few great easy hikes out to the ocean cliffs.  more »
  • This was actually a pleasant surprise . We didn't plan on going here but when Russian Gulch was closed due to flooding we were directed here by the park ranger. The hike to the pygmy forest was an easy one (flat and 5 miles round trip) and was quite a unique experience to see the pygmy trees. Highly recommend.
  • Absolutely breathtaking! Stopped here on a road trip and I will definitely be coming back to collect more sea glass.
