I can only imagine how awesome this would be in any other season besides winter. The trail was snow covered in spots and we didn't have snow boots. The views are stunning and the price can't be beat.

It was a nice walk and the view was beautiful. We could not finish it because of the snow. I really enjoyed the snow around the mansions and took some nice pictures of the trees and the oqean with the snow in the background.

You get to walk through the "backyards" of many of the wealthiest mansions as you view the beauty on both sides of the path. The details are amazing as well as the natural beauty of the cliff walk.
