Cliffs, rocks, trees and views!!!! It is a loop, so take the left path first and about halfway around go off path to the cliffs. They are outstanding. Caution!!! Cliffs Not for kids or animals off leash!

I did this trail with my kids and we stop quite a bit but it was a great trail for them. They enjoyed jumping off the rocks they came across and it didn't have a lot of elevation so it was a great beginner trail for them.
Definitely very poorly marked though and I used the GPS on the All Trails app while we were recording the walk to make sure we stayed on track.
