Really fun walk with my 3yr old with people horseback riding, whales viewable in the distance, tree forts along the way, and the beach at the bottom (getting there is the one tricky part with a little one).

Beautiful hike along the beach. You get to see horses, ravens flying high into the sky, occasionally people paragliding or hang gliding, etc. There so many little hide outs and hangs out underneath all these branches built like a tent. Totally a great getaway to spend quality time with friends and nature, even a romantic hike with your loved one. There is steepness to it, sandy throughout, narrow, but overall not that difficult.
