i like this small island a lot i would recommmend camping over night note it is only tenting!!, it has a great history of mining underneath it and the chance to see the old quarry sites for sandstone mining. The trails around the island are well worth the hike and i would recommend this being a five minute boat ride over to the island via public foot ferry it is 9 dollars for a round trip
