Devils Pool & Gorge

Some places were created perfectly.

On the way back I checked out the road leading to the New Camaldoli Hermitage which has breathtaking views of the coastline and a great angle on the entire length of Stone Ridge leading to Twin Peak and Cone Peak. Numerous benches and even some picnic tables are placed along the road for enjoyment of the view and contemplation of the amazing gift of nature. I’m not a religious guy, but the monks certainly found a nice spot for prayer. The Hermitage is open to the public and I highly recommend the diversion off the highway to drive up the road to enjoy the views.

      For reference Byron, check out Big Creek State Reserve. That should get you pretty close.

        Descend from Ojito Camp. But didn’t you need to rapell down the one waterfall which is over 100ft ?
