beautiful scenery. I didn't expect the steps to be so steep but it evened out at points. such a great challenge to take on. next time we will have a carrier for our 2 year old.

The trail is initially steep, but levels out toward the top. We found one of the pillboxes which had a nice view of the beach. I was disappointed that we couldn’t find the other pillbox with the peace sign on it. We came across a sign that said “private property”, so I think the other pillbox may have been back there somewhere.

Even though it is a shorter hike, make sure to bring plenty of water and proper footwear. I saw a few folks struggling up the trail in sandals, long pants, and what looked like not enough water.

amazing views!

Absolutely gorgeous “pink pill box” hike! Not super easy but worth it. Wouldn’t recommend for kids. Bring water because it’s sunny!

So beautiful and not too hard. Bring water if its super sunny trust me

It’s an awesome and fairly easy as long as you take the right way. When it comes to a fork make sure you take the left if you aren’t looking for a challenge. The right is much steeper and can be exhausting in the heat. Many bunkers and definitely worth the view.

This trail was awesome!! Nice view almost all around, no shade however is worthy

Great hike, especially at sunset. A couple switch backs and steep parts, but worth the climb once you get to the top. Can get warm and there is no shade/breeze so bring water.

My family and I went today. We have lived in the area for about 2 years and have never been. It’s was absolutely beautiful and for those who love the outdoors and exploring it’s a great place to start. We were able to navigate easily and enjoyed getting in the water. I do wish people who visited the area took better care to clean up after themselves.

Great hike, moderately difficult with rocky terrain. Beautiful sights the entire way up.

Very fun family friendly trail! There were so many great views from each of the pill boxes. The trail isn't too hard, it's a little steep at first but it evens itself out and the views are worth it. It was nice to see the bunkers the soldiers worked in. There was also old parts of buildings that lay up there. All in all very great views of sunset beach and a nice short workout!

Nice hike a little warm when we went today around 1000. It is a moderate hike with a lot of switchbacks, but some amazing views on top and during the climb. The climb past the pink pill box is along a ridge for a very short distance and is not for those with a fear of heights. It was moderately trafficked on a Saturday probably less trafficked on a weekday.

Go early! We got there at 9am and it was really hot and humid in the trail. There’s not much shade and the trail ends up feeling hotter because of the way it’s set up, they’re like hot pockets. Not great, pace yourself and definitely bring water & wear SPF. The pill boxes were really cool, the pink one you’ll need someone to boost you if you want photos on top of it. Incredible, gorgeous views. Worth it!!!

A fun hike with a great view! It didn’t take us too long and fortunately it hadn’t rained so it wasn’t as slippery and muddy as some have described. The first part is a lot of uphill and the ropes really help getting up the rocks and slick parts.

Weather was perfect for this hike, ground was nice and dry so no muddy areas. Ropes helped on the rocks going up and down, but over all a nice climb. Views were spectacular! Saw lots of small groups, no dogs though. Highly recommend!

I love this place, lots of hidden treasures if you know where to look. Follow the creek up stream at the wood bridge and continue up to the springs. You won't be disappointed. You can also travel the main trail, that passes by the main water fall, across the swinging bridge and continue down until you think the trail ends. It doesn't, though it's nearly impossible to see, just keep going. There are cascading water falls, the ruins of the first water mill in Bell county, and remains of the Chisholm trail were thousands of wagons left there wheel tracks in limestone. People are trashy here though. I've picked up over 15 grocery bags worth of trash. I once carried out 6 at a time. It is a gem regardless.

I didn’t get to finish the hike because I brought my black lab when we went to hike this in the afternoon. The trail was too hot for our lab. She started laying down to get her feet off the trail dirt. Recommend doing this in the mornings if you plan to bring your pets! Will be back to get to the pillbox, looks pretty cool from the bottom

Steep trail, for about 1/4 mile but not slippery great views at the top. Bunker to explore, and Picnic table to rest and take photos at before you reach the top.

Awesome trail, you definitely get your moneys worth on this steady steady climb. Awesome views at the top

great hike! starts off the first half the way with a steep incline but has ropes to help through half of it. wouldn't reccomend going after a rain as it can get very muddy. lots of tree roots to trip over so watch your footing.

first pillbox is legal but second one you walk through private property so be watchful and kind or dont go!

Great hike!
It gets hot during the middle of the day but totally doable. Great ocean views!

Beautiful anytime, in the day time for a juicy ocean color views or for the gorgeous sunset in the evening.

Short, but a little slippery (small dry rocks), changing if the sun is out. Suggest to wear sunblock and hat anytimes. Not so great for a pets, since there is almost no shade and no breeze.

It was muddy but it was worth every single for step. Moderate hike
