More of an easy walk than a moderate one but stunning views! Try the famous lifting stones on the beach or at least read about their amazing history.

First to Review

Really cool area to traverse along the shoreline. Even on a cloudy day it was beautiful views. A nice stop to stretch your legs from the car ride. Apparently you can see the top of the glacier on a nice day, but we had too much clouds.
