It is so beautiful and the constant winds keep it so cool, that you might not realized you're not drinking enough water! We loved walking the trails with our dog, and taking photos of the great views around every bend. It's a perfect spot to get away and have some peace & quiet. I recommend good walking shoes or hiking boots because there are a lot of up and downhill segments to the trails.
There is a lot to see and do here- it's a nice drive around the area and there are tons of trails you can hike. Most of the major sites can also be seen from the road if you are not big into hiking. The lookout point near the visitors center is worth going to visit- the view is really spectacular.
The various stacks, tidal pools and scenery makes a great day. We were out there during "high winds" and while it would have been more comfortable in a warm, sunny day, it was well worth the walk
We parked at the visitors center and walked the trail to the ocean and then explored all of the trails branching off from that. Thor's Well was amazing and we feared for the lives of the photographers who were standing at its edge! Fortunately, we were there at around high tide so it was pretty dramatic. We'd love to go back when we have more time to hike more of the trails there.
We visited at low tide, so we were able to see the tide pools. We did the short hike to the giant spruce, recommended by the nice employee in the visitor center. She was very helpful, and suggested several things we might want to do/see based on our interests. The trip to the top and walk to the stone shelter is a must-do; the views there are incredible! The next time we visit, I will make sure it's at high tide, so that we get the full effect of some of the other sights, like Thor's Well.
