Like they've said, easy at the beginning and very flat and still, but after a little over a mile, the ups and downs begin. The trail sort of ends at the cliffs and beach, which is not ideal for those looking for a loop. We followed the meadow trail to the road and walked by the visitor's center to the parking area for the trail.
Easy trail until the end with epic hill!
Wonderful trail the begining is a little pedestrian, but turns into better hike when you get closer to the marshy area. I'll definitely be going back in the warmer months.
