Very family oriented, wide, easy, well graded trail. Only thing to watch out for are the junctions to the pillboxes and when its raining, it can get slippery. Some rope sections which could come handy when muddy and slippery.

Good trail a lot of fun. Really easy so if you are looking for a challenge this isn’t it. Great views go early started getting crowded after 9.

Done many times, always breathtaking view. Rescued a baby chameleon from an impending ant attack. Helped him find his way into a tree. 2nd pillbox is just beyond private property sign

The first part of the trail is fairly steep. In some places this is due to erosion and people walking up the erosion trails. We wandered around for a while looking for the second pillbox or other views of the ocean. We never did find the pillbox with the peace sign on top of it. Like any popular trail there are lots of side trails so going with someone who knows the area might be a good idea.
