The views are truly magnificent. Make sure you climb up to the lookout (which has a picnic table so being a lunch).
This is one hike you don't want to miss. It's not really easy but just meduim, but it's definetly worth it> Great views over the cliffs while the bald eagle is soaring overhead. TAke at least 2 hours just to have time to enjoy the views
This is a great trail with great views. I recommend travelling it clockwise so you can climb the steepest part rather than descend it. I don't think I would have felt my footing was as secure if I had descended the steep part.
I call it Skinamarink for fun but this trail which I had not heard of previously has to go down as my all-time favorite hike.

This trail is exceptionally well maintained and marked. Anyone of moderate fitness can enjoy the hike as it is relatively level and where there is an uphill there are stairs. Benches are placed along the trail for breaks to absorb the gorgeous sea views. highly recommended.
