Easy cliff-top dirt path with amazing coastal views.

We drove to the light house and paid 7.50/person for going up. From Oct. to Dec, it is good time for great whale watching but we did not have a luck.
The view is amazing, and it was scary up there with strong wind!
Worth the money!

Spectacular view with so much wind.
Be careful with cows and their poops. Nobody but we were there, which made us feel we were on another planet.
It is not just 180 but 270 degree ocean view!
You can tell our planet, Earth, is spherical by looking at the ocean horizon.

Beautiful walk along the coast. Great for all skill levels. Mostly flat path- a slight incline above the falls. Stunning views and it takes you to Stornetta Falls which falls over the bluff into the ocean- at least during the Winter and Spring. Since it is mid August it is just a small waterfall on top of the bluff. Also have a view of Sea Lion Rocks. Saw about 10 seals in the water during our hike. Also saw many Pelicans flying overhead:) Parking at the trailhead is free and there is a porta potty. This hike was a great addition to our visit to the Point Arena Lighthouse:)

Easy walk, but amazing views. Birds, Harbor seals and whale watching.

Got there just a bit before sunset so I didn't get a chance to walk around much, but the view is well worth the visit. Bring you camera and just wait for the sun to go down. Amazing.
