The trail is overgrown and sometimes not clearly marked but the views were amazing! It’s hot up there with no shade, so bring water, sunscreen and a hat. We got a little rain and wind as well. If you have trail pants, would suggest wearing them as the overgrown brush scraped up my legs pretty well. Follow the orange markings on the rocks! Do not attempt this hike in sandals.

This is a great hike with an amazing view the entire way. Park near the lighthouse trail, then walk across the street to start. Stay high along the ridgeline to enjoy a view the entire way. Avoid starting late because there is no shade on this trail.
