We were dropped off at the trail head on Center Line Road, which meant our hike to Cinnamon Bay was nearly all downhill. It was an ok hike, but there were a lot of tree roots and loose rocks to watch out for. There were 2 spots on the walk where the tree canopy opened up and offered great views... More

The trail here is very informational and worth doing, but be aware that it is not well marked - we found our way by looking for the interpretive signs along the way. Still worth a visit, though, as it is a short hike with lots to learn and one of the few that doesn't involve steep climbs.

Nice short hike that goes through some ruins and does a loop through the woods. Interesting facts along the trail and a cemetery near the end of the hike.

Nice easy to follow fairly flat trail through some impressive sugar ruins. It doesn't take very long to complete so why not do it?
