A popular picturesque paved stroll to the Punakaiki "pancake" rocks and a surge pool with interesting interpretive signage along the way. Accessibility: The trail surface is paved and typically at least three feet wide. The grade is mostly gentle (all estimated 5% or less except for steep 10% sections at about 0.4 and 0.5 miles when going counterclockwise). Some of the viewpoints require staircases for access.Show more
