This is by far one of my favorite places I have visited. Scenery is spectacular, trails well maintained. Ocean crashing up on the rocks, little sea creatures hidden away. What more can be said?

Some beautiful, informative, well maintained walking trails. Found parking to be a little tight in busy periods and electronic pay ticket stations were finicky. But well worth visiting

The title says it all, the Pacific Rim is an incredible and varied drive. It makes the driver jealous that they can't constantly be looking out the window, so luckily I was a front seat passenger! Keep your camera at the ready.
