Following the hike, if it is open, you can drive up to the Nike Missile Site site to learn about some of our country's history. This is usually open Saturdays from 12:30 - 3:30 PM, but has been listed as closed in the past months due to COVID. Double check the GGNRA website beforehand.

If it is open, families may also chose to visit the Marine Mammal Center on their own. This too has been listed as closed in the past months due to COVID. Double check their website beforehand.

Don't forget to bring a lunch, snacks and plenty of water. There are no food vendors at this location. Wear appropriate clothes since the weather may change rapidly.
