This hike is fairly easy but so beautiful. I could sit and look at the lighthouse with the ocean all day. Although next time I do this hike, I plan to do it during the sunrise.

We love this trail! the views are awesome especially during the "winter" when the whales are out. We take our puppy out there as much a possible.

Bring your tennis shoes! It can get rocky and difficult to walk through the sand. It's along the water and there's no shade along the short hike, but once you get to the end, just jump in the water and it was all worth it!

Easy hike with great views.

This trail is paved out to the top lookout. We also hiked to the pill boxes on the very top. The views are unbelievable. Went early to beat the crowds.

This is a beautiful hike along an easy paved pathway to a few overlooks and the lighthouse (to get there you will need to take a little dirt path off of the paved path). Very easy and would recommend to any age group and families. Lots of neat cacti along the trail, and a beautiful view of the tide pools. Did this hike for sunrise and was surprised to see a dozen or so other hikers out with us. It is not shaded, so be aware that it can get quite toasty.

Made the trek this morning at sunrise to the arch, and the view was gorgeous! Definitely worth the wake up call. Climbed atop the arch for a better view, and the climb up the arch is a little sketchy. It looks like there may have been a rope at one point, but no more. Didn't attempt the trek to the top of the crater today, but would like to attempt it eventually.

Beautiful view but not much of a hike
