Following Highway 101 take Exit 11 to the 358 North and drive to Scott's Bay. Then follow the Cape Split signs to the parking lot and the trailhead.

Loved this hike! The wooded area and forest was enchanting; old growth, trilliums, carpet of May flowers, moss and cool towering trees were a highlight. The end was magnificent, especially in the waining light.

This hike was more than I ever imagined
It took approximately one hour to hike up the trail with no break. When you get to the top of the trail and see the view, you are in awe. I would recommend anyone to do it. Take your time and be prepared, bring a snack and something to drink.
You are definitely going to want to stay for a while

Very popular now and suggest going early. Also, walk in is about 2hrs through woods. only the end has views.

Great trail. Give 4 to 5 hours for return. Stay away from the cliff edge at the end.. Awesome views.

Fantastic trail. Did this multiple times. Even once with infant carriers front and back. The view is always better then expected. Could be super dangerous at the end if not careful. Just stay clear from the edge and enjoy. Easy hike

The five stars are for the view you are rewarded during this hike/walk. The view was spectacular! The hike there was more of a nice and easy walk, would make for a great jog/trail run.
