It is an amazing walk! Pet friendly and family friendly. This is a walk that I have went on ever since I was 5 years old. Amazing view and ocean!

Easy quick trail

Great quick family hike!

Amazing views, easy walk with a few stairs in some places. The trail meanders around the water front, with breathtaking water views everywhere you look. Lots of benches and look out spots to stop and take in the scenery. I highly recommend this trail.

Great walk for the family! Ran into an owl and a deer!

Great trail by the sea. Many options to shorten or make it longer, so absolutely great with small kids.
Fairy doors add extra magic for the kids:-)

I love the fairy forest you can find here! Plus the views!

However some people keep stealing the fairy doors some kids are making :(

They have expanded the trail; now enters into a larger trail section. Look for the signs when walking it!

Nice walk along the ocean. Awesome on sunny days, you can see all the mountains across the water.

It was beautiful and awesome. Also had a good time slipping into the water after trying to be cool walking across a slippery log! :D Be careful kids!

i like this small island a lot i would recommmend camping over night note it is only tenting!!, it has a great history of mining underneath it and the chance to see the old quarry sites for sandstone mining. The trails around the island are well worth the hike and i would recommend this being a five minute boat ride over to the island via public foot ferry it is 9 dollars for a round trip
