Its really more a walk on the beach rather than a proper hike. I went off the beaten path a little which brought you to these incredible views, alternatively the trailed route seemed a bit dull. All together was worth the scenery, but would recommend sneaking away and adventuring off the path!

Bluffers Park was a pretty amazing sight to see we walked as far as we could at the docks to the right side of the parking lot, then we walk back to the left side where we did a little hike up the mountain and you can look down at a pretty beautiful sight and we walked from the top from the main lookout which brought us back down to the parking area and then from that area we went back to the beach on the right side to the other side of the beach. Overall it was pretty easy the climate it self was hard it did have some difficulties but otherwise it was pretty nice it was slightly muddy but nothing too crazy it was okay especially if you had like hiking shoes than I found that it was fine so definitely a 10 out of 10

Lovely trail. A but muddy and lots of gnats though they didn't bite. Beautiful views of the lake.

Decent options sure to Covid, but too busy and mostly bikers so have to stay alert. Also have to get over the sewage smell from the water treatment facility.

A little overgrown and muddy at points but it had a great view of the bluffs and of the lake. Definitely worth the trip!

It is closed for construction but also it’s not really a trail. It’s more of a path through a park and along the beach. Which is also nice! I was just expecting to go up the bluffs and turns out that’s is a hard NO. No paths to do that and it’s a $5,000 fine if you climb up the bluffs now or get on them. ..... I was told by people around the area and at the beach there are ways though......

It is not exactly a trail, is more a path to the beach. The access to get to trail through the public transportation is not easy as well. No shade in almost the entire route.

So the official “hike” is just “a walk in the park”. Literally. Very boring. But there are some paths that someone has paved through the tall bamboo that leads all the way up the bluffs! It is pretty difficult climb which gets narrow at times but it a lot of fun and has a great view at the top. I’m sure there are many trails to the bluffs but my and my friend found one right next to a dumpster in one of the parking lots. Keep a look out and I’m sure you’ll find one. Be carful though, as the bluffs are made out of hard mud. Nothing more.

Cute short walk to the beach by the bluffs. The main trail is closed for construction M-F so that was a bummer, but we found another way around!

Not much of a trail; just a sidewalk, then beach, then sidewalk about 20m from the beach. This trail does NOT go up the bluffs/cliffs.

Excellent views. We went off trail and climbed up the dirt side of the bluffs. Seems like people have done it before since there was a little bit of a pathway. Very steep. Luckily we went after it had rained so there was good traction. Cute little streams and wildlife. We didn’t find the top of the bluffs but it was a fun experience overall!
