Great trail. Did this route counterclockwise, which meant for a more gradual incline and finishing off ascending sandstone peak. This way also meant for a good view of the tri peaks and the option to hike up to them if you are feeling alright and have time. Climbing to the top of sandstone has spectacular views and great way to finish this fairly easy hike. If you can manage to find it, there is a spot right before you get to sandstone called inspiration point. Not at high as sandstone, but good view of the ocean and surrounding area.
