Just go. It’s one of the trails that is actually marked. A wonderful up and down hike with beautiful ocean views at every turn. Loved it.

Parked in the small lot near the sign for the beach. Then crossed the beach and followed the trail over a bog. The trail led up to terrific lookouts. 360 degree views and great breeze.

This beach is a must see, although not very big, you can walk a fair distance if you are a hiker. We did not as I wasn't feeling up to it. But the beach, which is rocky, is a good place to visit.

Perfect hike, not to steep, but a bit of a challenge. Long range 360 views that just take your breath away.

Very quiet walk, quite easy over the coast to the beach. Lovely views. Parking near the entrance, do go any just soak up the ambiance.

The rolling trail offered up plenty of thrilling cliff hugging views. Often narrow and rocky, sometimes a bog, but always something to keep us entertained. In June the weather was wet and cold, so when the sun did peep out on this hike, it was...More

Nice hike, lots of ups and downs on loose gravel so proper footwear is a must. We combined this with Spillers Cove trail and both were well marked.

We hiked part of this trail. The beach is extremely rocky and hard to walk across. Some of the trail is difficult to manoever

Great trail with many views and so many scenic points for photos along the way (rocky beaches, dramatic cliffs, grassy tundras, forests). A fairly easy/moderate hike with only some mild elevation gain and descent with trails that are in reasonable condition (only a couple somewhat...More
