Great trail for some easy scrambling on rocks but I would not rate it an easy trail more on the harder side of moderate. Offers some great views.

A fun and beautiful hike with great coastal views nearly the entire way. However, this is NOT an "easy" hike. Easy to me implies relatively flat terrain - something a small kid and a not very nimble 80 year old in decent shape could handle. That is not this hike. This hike involves rocky uneven terrain nearly the whole way around, with some serious rock scrambling over ledges. I personally loved it, but had I known what it was actually like, I would have chosen someplace else for the family hike that is actually "suitable for all skill levels". Somebody at All Trails dropped the classifying ball on this one.
