    Nice walk for leashed dogs and people

    Nice walk along bluffs with breeze and oceanview or take the route on the beach. Only one of five natural places to view tar pits. Limited parking. Park at state park for fee or nearby residential area is free. Leashed dogs allowed on trail but not beach.
