Climbing to the top to see "El Faro" is a strenuous task, however when there the views are just terrific. Just the trip up & down is an experience that one does not forget. The pathway is quite rough and times seems a little dangerous. The walk should NOT be taken by those that are not physically capable.
Bit of a climb but the view was worth it. One should be aware that the trail up & down the mounntain does not always have a barricade and as you can see from the video clip that it is not that great to begin with. The views however are terrific, you can see the cruise ships from California docked in the harbor, the Sierra Madre mountain range in the background and also the pollution in the air, all of which that was not noticable at our beach location. Lighthouse is quite basic (also NO snacks) but the view was priceless.
