Perfect hike before hitting the beach! Breathtaking views

We were unaware of the new reservations system and despite arriving very early (7:30 am), we were not allowed in the park. There is no way to pay/reserve on the day you arrive -- it must be done 24 hrs in advance. Glad they are managing the park to limit visitors and protect the park, but we sure wish we had known about this change ahead of time. Turned around and spent a beautiful morning snorkeling at nearby Tunnels Beach. A very nice consolation prize!

I was 66 and out of shape (more than I thought) when we hiked to the beach and back. Challenging for me but worth every step.
