This was a great find. We walked in the morning which I would highly recommend, due to the heat. The path takes you through trees, along the ocean and on the edgfe of a golf course. Great photo opportunities

There are parts of the trail that are paved and accessible from resort areas, but there are parts that are down at the end of a dirt (and pretty Rough) road. The section along by the cliffs has some spectacular views, especially when the winds...More
