The area includes a protected, driftwood-strewn estuary at the back of a wide, sandy beach - with grassy bluffs along the coast. The estuary is home to many birds and small animals. California Historical Landmark 26 commerates the passage of Spanish Explorer Captain Gaspar de Portol through this area in October 1769.
This is a great spot for a short walk while admiring the Pacific Northwest coastline. I didn't see any "hikes" around but it's certainly a great site and possibly a good picnic spot if the weather is right. Lastly, remember to bring $8 in cash for parking (donation/honor based).
