Bruhel Point offers a beautiful “Vista Point” west of Highway One at milepost 74.09 that includes benches, interpretive panels, accessible parking, and an all-access trail. The trail has a concrete surface leading south from the parking lot and offers several benches for ocean viewing. A short (0.25 mile) descent to the bluff edge on a dirt path offers hikers great views of a tidal shelf, as well as ocean swells and another viewing bench. There are no restroom facilities, and there are numerous paths crossing the property and along the bluff edge. This public access is managed by Caltrans.
