I grew up in the area but never knew about this place. Finally got around to visiting on visit home and was so glad I did. Truly a wonderful spot along the open ocean. I will come again!

We were there on a foggy day but it was still beautiful. A nice pathway for a walk. The ability to sit out on the rocks and watch the surf was special. Serene.

Beautiful short trail along the top of the rocks with stunning views of the rocky headland and coastline. Easy and free parking in the designated lay-bys for visitors. Kids loved climbing and exploring the rocks. The drive down to Bailey Island is nice too.

The giants stairs is a nice walk. The history of the area is neat and the kids and adults alike were able to walk the trail with some of the others did some rock climbing. Neat geological feature.

Beautiful trail with flora surrounding (depending on time of the year) and lots of rocks to climb (or slip on) to work off all that seafood.
