  • We've hiked here multiple times. There are challenging trails and the views are gorgeous! Lots of rocks to climb if you prefer.  more »
  • Fantastic afternoon at Norman 🐦 sanctuary. They had a wonderful program featuring artist's from the Mabel Residency. The grounds are huge and include spectacular views of the ocean.
  • This is a great place to go hiking. What a view in some spots! I have been here only a couple of times but I would definitely recommend it. I will be back soon with my camera to get some bird shots. We saw a couple of ducks mating and an egret. Even though we didn't see many birds we weren't really looking. We were more interested in getting some miles in and there are plenty of trails here to do that. The whole time you are there you can hear the birds singing. It's a mystical little spot with a lot of history. If you're looking to get away from it all this is the spot. They even have picnic tables so pack a lunch and spend the day.
