It's a lovely - short yet challenging trail.

if you would like to complete this hike you will need to charter a boat to the island. I planned to hike while my family snorkled but our tour guide took our shoes before we got on the boat. I hiked around the beach to the trail head which is a little run down but does have bbq pits and a restroom... so charter a boat bring good shoes and a meal to bbq and you'll have a good time.
I will post pictures when I get home.

Very nice trail to the top of the hill on Buck Island and down the other side. Sand and cacti. if you come on the island on a tour, they usually don't leave you the hour you need t hike the trail
