great short walk good views.

We just did the short loop from the Beech Cliffs parking lot and it was super easy and short, with a gorgeous view of Echo Lake and beyond.

It’s popular for a reason! Crowded but it’s pretty awesome to be hiking so close to the ocean all the way. Very easy trail and a lot of fun!

Views are amazing but this is a HEAVILY tracked trail along a main road. Mostly flat.

Breathtaking views of the ocean!

Definitely not easy going down when the stones are wet. Even with hiking boots it was slick due to the lichen on the stones. Beautiful trail though with history and scenic views.

Though it’s said to be a “must see”, parking is not clearly marked on the way up, the top lot is tourist mayhem. “Trail” is a walking path with lots of people. Good to check it off the list, but not our favorite spot.

Views are incredible!!! Great for trail running. Many beautiful spots to stop and take in the beauty.

Great views and a really nice hike. Awesome for the dogs, very enjoyable.

Great scenic trail and wonderful for taking the pups.

Started at Otter Point and walked north with my husband and girls (7 and 10). Good walk, not too easy, with beautiful views the whole way to thunder hole. We walked there and back and that was perfect.

Mostly easy with moderate short rocky sections. Plenty of opportunities for pictures, multiple off main trail paths to scenic areas. Not a lot of parking spaces at trail head.

Great views, easy hike in and back!

Wonderful moderate trail with lots of great views.

Not easy, but very interesting and rewarding. Stone steps up and down.

Wonderful short walk/hike around harbor to great granite rock ocean overlook! On a sunny day, many beautiful spots to sit and have lunch, bask in the sun while listening to the ocean and watching wildlife in and around both sides of the harbor. Can follow rocks and climb along the coast to other harbors and to other trails. Nice short day walk!

Great hike with excellent view at the top!

Beautiful trail and an easy walk.

Just the right walk for a just before it rained - day. Short but very pretty

Start at end of Echo Lake parking lot. I took my wife with. She is short and had open heart surgery 2 years ago. There are 4 iron ladders near the top. Go right for greatest views. Come back from top and make the loop back to Echo Lake parking. A fun trail.

Beautiful trail. The real treat about this trail is all the tide pooling that can be done a few hours before low tide...kids had a blast on this trail because of it.

The scenery is great, but whether or not one likes this trail entirely depends on what one is looking for: great for a little stroll (there are lots of parking lots along the road next to this trail) with nice ocean views. Path is entirely flat and smooth. However, this is of course no hiking trail whatsoever, but more of an ocean walking path (as in, leisurely strolling, not hiking).

this was a great trail but as the above mentioned it was more like a sidewalk trail some of it was in the woods but not all of it but this was still an awesome trail very easy. My wife and I did the trail and stopped at thunder hole and we actually saw a pod of whales in the distance by the buoys what a phenomenal sight it was. We were here around 12 or 12:30 and there were tons of people but not too many as to not be able to see. We had a blast. Afterward, we drove up Cadillac mountain and found a spot to see "bubble rock" take the time to explore the .5 mile hike up to bubble rock absolutely fabulous views take a picture of it as you are driving we missed out and it would have been awesome.

This is really more of a sidewalk than a trail. Not remotely what we expected. Cars and tour buses continually driving past, and packed with people even on an Wednesday post-Labor Day.

beautiful trail

BEWARE!!! NOT an easy hike!!! Marked Strenuous, accurately, on my map! 4 ladders staight up the cliffs, not good for dogs or people afraid of heights!!!

Beautiful views, a few ladders which made the hike more challenging & fun
