This is a beautiful hike on a bluff where you can see the ocean the whole time. On the way back (if you start the loop counter clockwise), you walk along the beach. We parked in the lot near the cemetery, so we took the Ebey's Prairie Ridge Trail and also got to check out the historic Jacob Ebey Cabin and Davis Blockhouse.

Very beautiful! Hike along the ridge and see the amazing views. And hike the beach searching for treasures on way back!!

The hike is a breeze. Just like the other reviewers, it is best to start counterclockwise. Go up the hill then hike down to the beach. Not much people on the hike, which is great. It is dog friendly, but must be on leash. Be sure that you buy the parking pass ahead of time. Otherwise, you will find yourself scrounging for cash or calling the number to purchase it.

Gorgeous views and wildflowers!!!

Parking can be a bear but well worth it. Easier to start off on the hiill and go counter clockwise than to start from the beach mainly due to footing in the soft sand trying to hike up the hill.

really easy trail. what's really great is the view. prime spot for sunsets.
