It's immediately adjacent to Highway 101, so it is a quick and easy stop -- and well worth a few minutes of your time. It's a very nice idea to have this kind of veterans memorial in plain sight, instead of off the beaten path....More

Great view. They have added picnic tables and are reinforcing the bank from erosion which improves the stop. It is not large though and is very near the highway. It is popular with bicyclists and other 101 commuters. The turnoff is slightly tricky so be...More

Although this is small in size it provides views to calm the sole and lift your heart. Located on the shoulder of 101 you can see Haynes Inlet, Horsfall area, the sand dunes, McCullogh bridge and the Pacific Ocean without getting lost.

Good place for a convenient stop along 101. Nice setting. I wouldn't drive out of the way to visit this alone, but if you're coming into the area it's a nice place to stop and pay your respects.

Even if you just pull in for a snack or to make a phone call (as I was this time), this lovely memorial is a pleasant place to stop. I appreciate the sentiments and the view and try to always leave a few dollars in...More
