  • 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.

  • Beautiful and seemingly popular park. There looked to be trails that were quite popular. However, we want there to see if the beach was good for swimming. There are stairs down to the beach. The beach had big waves so we didn't swim there. However the walk to the beach and sitting on the beach is beautiful. The parking lot is a decent size and seemed pretty full. It is free to enter park
  • Hiked the point by the ocean and the Ecological staircase trailers. Beautiful views of the ocean and then a really nice hike through the forest up to a pygmy forest. Well worth a visit.
