The trail starts off rather steep, and circles back down to the town - this first part has some nice views, trees and grassy paths. The walk along the coast is spectacular, and the beach is a great place for a snack break.

Very peaceful trail. Great views of the cliffs and the ocean. There are towns in between that makes it perfect for a break. Took longer than expected. Viola was not swim able, the waves were too intense. All around a perfect way to spend the afternoon.
