As I sought ocean front bike routes I learned of this refuge that is found at the end of a series of beaches. Not far from Purgatory Chasm, I rode down the road past the beaches and the line of cars trying to get into the lots.
I reached the refuge to find a lovely visitors building with a restroom and water. Maps were available showing the short but beautiful hikes around the property.
A simple mile and half loop offered breathtaking views of the ocean, cliffs and wildlife.
I cautiously walked along the rocks to gain different perspectives. The colors were amazing with the sounds of the water splashing along the rocks entrancing.
The paths were filled with wildflowers, birds and butterflies.
I could have sat on the rocks for hours as each wave produced a different and unique show to appreciate.
You can’t help but give respect to the power of the water crashing against the rocks.
The paths were well marked with designated areas for shore access.
