Lovely hike with numerous viewpoints and a wonderful view at the top. Google Maps takes you halfway up the trail so walk was quicker and likely steeper. Some loose rocks so be careful of footing on the coastal arm.

Nice trail with stunning ocean views. I loved seeing all the arbutus trees along the cliffs. It made for some great bird watching.

Nice trail with great views! Cute swing at the top. Lots of hiking up hill but also lots of breaks.

very enjoyable trail, lots of ups and downs. my brother and I did it in the winter and parts were very muddy (as to be expected) but overall some really great scenery. it was super foggy but it added to the atmosphere, the view points were a bit disappointing as you couldn't see the water due to fog coverage. will be visiting this trail again in the warmer months

Awesome hike, view after view after view. Go early enough in the morning and you swear you’re the only person in the whole park. Easy footing, some rocky parts and some inclines, some areas aren’t marked well either and can get turned around fairly easy. But it’s definitely worth it.

Great trail for the first half of the loop. Has good views and a nice path. The second half of the loop is along a road and could be made better by walking along the water trail.

First half of the trail was great. Beautiful overlooks of the inlet. The second half of this trail was on a highway, I would recommend turning around and going back the way you came instead.

Didn’t have cell service at the trailhead so couldn’t access the trail map till I reached Holmes Peak - didn’t need it, well marked out. Nice views from there to Jocelyn Hill. Looped back using part of Timberman Trail and Holmes Peak bypass. Some sections with loose rocks and steep ups and downs using that way back - but had a good 11 km hike.

We just do the trek up to Jocelyn Hill and back, haven't done the loop yet, but the best part of the trail is the incredible view along the ridge. Very scenic hike and would recommend it highly. Trail is good, but wear proper footwear.

Great little trail. Took my dog there today. We ended up doing a total of around 11km. Pretty secluded in some spots, we only saw a handful of people. Good burn. Lots of hills, but flat too. Overall, thoroughly enjoyed it!

Burned the most calories here so far. Its never boring. A good amount of hike and flat surfaces. Sprained my ankle here today. Wear comfortable shoes preferably with ankle protectors/stabilizers. Lotsa rocky/loose gravel trails. But otherwise I enjoyed it. Best scenery so far! Bring lunch and enjoy!

Hiked in early May and enjoyed the wildflowers. Amazing views as others have said. Lots of cute little green lizards (European Wall Lizards I think). Good workout without being overly strenuous. Would imagine it gets hot in the summer.

Lovely hike, great views! Would suggest a good pair of hiking boots during winter hikes, some sections are pretty muddy! My pup and I will definitely be hiking this trail again :)

Trail Condition: Easy to follow for the most part. There are one or two places where you might get a bit confused or lost but if you keep to the main trail you are fine. Well maintained. Aesthetic: Lovely trail and views all around. Distance/Elevation: Longer distance, some steep sections but overall there are nice sections between hills. View Point/Summit: Great view points and summit.
