Super fun and short little hike. When I went I was the only person on that little stretch of beach for almost 30 minutes. So many people at the Inn start the hike and then stop very shortly into it because it is very steep at parts for non-hiker folks.

Great little hike. Near the top, the few steep sections with loose rocks can make footing a challenge. Also, this north facing trail doesn't see much sunlight before mid-afternoon causing a lot of slippery surfaces. The views are gorgeous, and the bottom rewards you with a waterfall and beach access. We arrived as the tide was coming in and by the time we ascended the beach was completely underwater.

Very steep but short hike down to the beach. The views were incredible and we had the whole beach to ourselves. I would definitely do it again allowing more time to chill on the beach.

it's a steep trail that zig zags down, a 15 min hike but took longer frome stopping and taking pics, great trail, some points slippery, loose rocks, seen a couple carrying their dog, no little kids, narrow trail. mostly dirt a must do again, at the end enjoyed sometime sitting on the rocks watching the waves.
