  • Spend a long time and hike from the sea up the winding path (fit for hikers, not casual strollers) to the many terraced forests until you reach the dwarfed trees of the fabled "Pygmy Forest" of trees....  more »
  • It was great weather that day in Oct and the short hike over to the cliffs provided another beautiful view of the California coast.  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.
