Calling all adventurists, Potato Chip Rock needs to be added to the bucket list. This approximately 7 mile, out and back trail, is a must do for both locals and visitors alike. It’s one of the most popular trails in the area and for good reason. Not only do you get great views of the Pacific Ocean, get to sit on Potato Chip Rock and of course snap a sweet picture with you atop the rock, which is aptly named since the rock forms a very thin overlook that is gravity defying. You’ll have to see it to believe it!
