A perfect hike, a must do! The trail is easy to walk on and the Vista at the end is worth it!

Lente descente sur le haut des falaises. Vue sur le Pacifique 750 mètres plus bas: Impressionnant!
Première partie un peu glissante. Des bâtons sont bienvenus après la pluie.

A good hike to stretch the legs on with stunning views at the end. Don’t let the ascent profile worry you it’s a nice climb out

Wet and slippery going down the ridge most of the way, but the sun came out right at the end of the trail with an amazing rainbow and a miraculous view! Hike out was much easier as it started to dry up, but still testing how well your shoes can grip the mud.

Great views but mundane trail descent. Hike back out has 2-3 step section, but for the most part wasn’t that hard.

Definitely a must, however best on a sunny day. We started around 10 AM and it started raining after an half hour down. By the time we were down to the cliff, it was pouring. The view is still great but much more enjoyable without the fog and rain ! You can go a little further down closer to the ridge in good weather.
On the way back the trail transformed in a running stream of water so keep that in mind before heading down in the rain ;-)

The trip is marked as 6.5 miles round trip. 3.25 miles down to the cliff and then back to the parking lot.
