Just follow the trail and be amazed by the beauty around each bend! There were a few scrambles for this 5’2” person, but they can be avoided if you are smarter than me and figure out an alternate trail. If you choose to take a trail further inland you won’t encounter the steeper bits. Take your time, enjoy the lovely coast!

4 stars and even 5 stars for the views. Unfortunately a section of the trail was closed. Also a couple of short sections showed significant erosion and I would recommend taking the alternative walk around. These were not obvious detours but they were short and safe.

Great hike with fabulous views. Bonus was a small restaurant/cafe at lighthouse for an America no and pastry. Brilliant day for a hike. Views are stunning, not a lot of elevation, but opportunities to drop down (and up) stairways to beaches

Great hike along the coast to see the incredible coastline features. Trail meanders and splits all over SI just keep heading in the right direction. A few areas you bump out to the street to avoid private property. A nice add we did on the way back was to drop down the stairs at a beach and come up other side.

Fantastic and picturesque views of the rocky carved up cliffs. It was an easy walk along the dirt/sand trail above the cliffs. I enjoyed venturing down to the edge of the cliffs for some better views, and that required being careful along the narrow trail with steep drop offs right alongside. It was worthwhile taking the long stairway down to Camilo beach where there’s a cool arch to walk through and a secret cave to crawl into and look skyward through the rock tube. We went at low tide I believe and the arch and cave might not be accessible at higher tides.
