On a beautiful day this park is stunning. The ocean walks and views followed by the artifacts makes for a beautiful day. Out of the way so pack all you need for the whole day.

Many well maintained hiking trails, great West Coast experience. I hike in the park 3 days a week and never get tired of the forest, views and trails.

Good example of an old farm on the island. Great access to the beach and best place to finish the hike.
