Short and sweet. Nice views. Well-maintained. Need to tap dance over rocks and roots. Easy access, so, it will draw crowds at times. Did this twice--first time with family mid day (lots of people, but still doable) ; 2nd time as a trail run in the morning, which was very nice and peaceful.

Fun and relatively quick hike. Has a nice steep start on rocks and some dirt trail then you're at the top, the rest is a nice slow decent down and around the back of the mountain with nice views of the Sound and opportunity to get down to the shore.
