I loved this trail. It can be difficult in spots. Wear good hiking shoes. The path is narrow and slippery in some places. The scenery is beautiful.

Kind of dangerous but definitely exciting. So different from the other hikes I had done before!

Beautiful views! A little narrow and on the edge at times. My husband and I wore tennis shoes and thought it helped. There's lose dirt through out the trail that can contribute to slipping so just be very careful. The view and the beach at the end is worth it.

Although the scenery is very beautiful, due to the fact that this trail is not maintained, it has eroded and become dangerous at at least one point. It should be reclassified as "difficult" or removed from this list entirely. I myself slipped and almost fell into a ravine, hanging by one hand and luckily got pulled up by two other hikers before my arm gave way. If you must hike this trail, make sure you have hiking shoes or boots with very good traction.
