This was a decent trail. I suppose the moderate rating stems from the rugged terrain. If you're not bothered by knee/ankle issues tho it's a fairly easy walk. Not much incline at all. Making sure you're stepping an rocks that's won't move when you step on them was the biggest challenge. Loved the cave at the end!!! That was AWESOME!!!

It is more rocky beach walk than trail, dicey footing- slow going to avoid twisted ankles. It was pretty, but there are better beach trails nearby.

Easy hike. Right along the beach and the cave was very cool at the end. Lots of rocks. Wear good shoes. Best to go during low tide.
