Lovely views - highly recommend Our specs: We are in shape, 24 years old; we hiked this trail mid-October. The whole week was rainy, though the day we hiked this was sunny and beautiful out. Trail was in and out of mountain range as well as beach and rocks. The trail was quite muddy due to recent rain. Sheep all over made for a pleasant interaction with the country-side. The ocean view and island spotting parallel to us also made for a pleasant and comforting walk.

This was a fun hike and we took the alternate coastal route. Great paths and views. However, more road walking than I’d like.

Gorgeous views and very nice walk through fields of sheep - we took the Mass Path to the beach as well which was lovely by the water.
