Super easy hike/walk for those who want amazing views but don't have to work hard for it. Bring some lunch and eat at the end of the trail by the beach area.

First, the road to the parking lot isn't as bad as some have reported. I got up there in a Nissan Sentra no problem, just dodge the bigger potholes and take it slow on the slightly rougher sections. The hike was a mostly easy/moderate one...More
