I wouldn’t recommend going with out snowshoes or possibly waiting till more snow melts but we did it and still enjoyed every second of it. Beautiful views! This hike is stunning. I can see why it’s so highly rated.

HikingGreat!

We loved the trail. It was well maintained. We wished there were more signs for directional purposes, the parking area seemed to be a long way from the start of the trail. Incredible cliffs and views! Would recommend

The trail was beautiful. It is narrow and difficult to pass other parties (Covid-19); however the sights were great.

Beautiful trail, especially for sunset! Got a bit buggy in parts, but definitely worth it! Would agree on the moderate rating - a few steep sections, but the trail is well-maintained with stairs. Took an hour and a half!

Excellent! Did the hike with my husband, 9 year old and 3 year old...3 year old didn’t miss a step. Took 3-4 stop along the way for lunch and drinks. Saw the whales jumping. Benches, bridges, board walk and stairs along the way. Very well done!
