Description

A truly spectacular view of the sea cliffs after a short but steep run through a meadow. Stand on a narrow finger of rock with steep cliffs on either side and look north and south at the interesting cliff features, including a natural arch and seas caves. This spot is particularly good at sunset. Beware of the dangerous cliffs, especially with pets and children.

Short Run: Use the Elk Flat Trail and then the Elk Flat Overlook Trail to access this gem.
