Was a bit Rainey the day we went but still Absolutely worth the trip. The views are amazing. Lots of trails to walk and soak in the BREATHTAKING views. Take advantage off all the areas to pull over on, great photos. Loved it.

When the fog is not present there are some great photo opportunities. The area is well-maintained and easy to navigate.
