  • Absolutely stunning and worth all the drive. Try to get there early to ensure you don’t have to hurry. Choose an odd pay with less traffic.

  • One of the most beautiful sunsets you can see! My favorite place to be after a long work day. Drive along the curvy mountain road until you find a parking area with little to no cars and then go have a full hillside to yourself and watch the sunset on the Pacific!! Highly recommend
  • Beautiful hiking option near John Muir Redwoods. Light mist and little drizzling added more fun in overall hiking fun. I would recommend to go to this hike if you are visiting John muir. Not suitable for small kids under 4
