We only walked a little ways down the trail. I wish we had more time and we would have gone further. Gorgeous views!

Didn’t do much hiking, more like scrambling around the rock formations. Still a really cool, unique landscape - almost like another planet.

First to Review

This is a fantastically interesting trail geologically. We saw two seals swimming in the water during the beginning's coastal section, sat and watched them for about an hour. We also came across boat wreckage in that area. The trail gets and stays rocky for most of the way. It can be challenging to stay on the path as it is a bit vague at times. Many interesting rock formations keep this interesting, with consistent background scenery and a dome-shaped hill for flavor. The hike is a bit flat which I would consider it's only drawback.
