  • Nice trail to the view point. Visitor center lady told me someone walked over too close to the edge a few weeks ago... view is the same a few feet away from the edge so enjoy safely.

  • Beautiful view on Whitaker Point. Wear comfy shoes and weather appropriate clothing. I’d also recommend bringing water and some protein snacks. Not too strenuous, but take care & don’t go alone bc it can be slippery and no fences or ropes are there for safety. There’s usually someone out there who can grab a pic of you on the cliff. Worth the view.
