This is definitely more of a walk than a hike but if you love the ocean then you will surely be a delight. There is a fantastic view of the water the entire time. Easy as pie and highly recommended. It's also a hop skip and jump from the abandoned old bunker so thats totally cool too!

This trail has a lot of great views of the ocean! Definitely on the easy side. There are other trails up there you can take to challenge yourself - just make sure you bring a trail map of the area in the event you don't have cell/internet service.

Excellent hike with breathtaking views. We did it with our 3y old and he was comfortable walking. Note that at this time, it's muddy and not stroller friendly with very uneven path. Plan accordingly.

This is a fairly easy hiking trail. I took my 6 month old puppy with me for the first time and he loved it! Amazing views throughout the first half of the trail. We ended up walking to the beach right after! This is definitely somewhere I will be going again!
