Easy hike, well maintained trail. Rocks down on the beach can be very slippery when wet. Great views!

This is a good hike for beginners, it is very flat with good trails. There is also a good access point for swimming and has some history with the old farmhouse foundation.

We did this Trail with our four-year-old and two-year-old. It was definitely easy enough for them both and the views were amazing and we all enjoyed the stairway to the mansion's foundation and the rocky beach. Definitely a favorite.
