Kickass Highpoint

A gorgeous and breathtaking hike (literally). Coming from sea level and hiking the 22 miles in a day, the last 200 feet of hiking got to me. Still though, the amazing views and sense of accomplishment was magical. Highly recommend!

A Favorite Dog Beach

This beach is more pebbly than sandy, but is dog-friendly and has free parking. Come early to avoid crowds.

Come Early In The Morning

There are a ton of nearby campgrounds. I recommend camping here and then waking up early for a soak. You're more likely to have the hot spring to yourself!

Easy High Elevation Hike

Hiked White Mountain this past weekend. Windy and beautiful. The entire 14 miles is on a jeep trail with very little scree making it an easier 14er. I started at 8:15 and made it back by 4:00pm with about 30 mins at the top. I also saw several mountain bikers doing this!

A Sunday Morning Favorite

Great spot to walk the dog on a weekend morning. Great even on a cool, foggy day. Great bird watching. I've also seen rabbits, dolphins and lots of seals.

Great Place For Dogs

A section of this trail is an off-leash dog area. One of the few nearby! Be advised there are zero trash cans or water at the trailhead for your pup.
