Can't believe I had to pay for this

The drive is pretty but to get our money's worth we stopped a lot and did some beach hiking trails. If you can go when it's sunny-do.

It is an excellent drive along the pacific coast. Lots of beaches embedded. Excellent view points for scenic photographs. Just that it has a toll of 10 USD associated.

The entrance fee was worth every penny! The homes and coastline are beautiful and we stopped along the way at the Seal Rock Picnic area to walk and take pictures. My son (who is 21) was impressed with the sea life in the tide pools and the ocean air was refreshing. The provided map was very helpful.

We absolutely loved the 17 mile drive on road bikes. If you are going by bike, you just can't miss this one! So much fun to pedal along the coast and up into the forest. Highly recommended.

We rented bikes from Adventures by the sea and followed the trail to Bird Island and back along the coast which ended up being about 17 miles total. It was a cool, sunny day and I got a sunburn so make sure you wear sunscreen! We stopped at two different beaches along the way to sit in the sand and... More
