A sublime autumn hike! Had the trail to ourselves and relished the stunning views. Previous reviewers referenced downed trees across the trail but we encountered none (evidence of recently cut trees; thx USFS). An excellent workout. Still a few wasps and of course I was stung but that didn't detract from the trail's beauty. My only complaint is the abundance of trash on the beach. Utterly disappointing that people would leave this otherwise pristine place with their mess.
