This mostly gravel and paved trail is a fun 1/4 day hike. Be sure to bring bug repellent or long sleeves. There can be mosquitoes some days, notably at the beginning of the trail. Seawall Beach at the end, during low tide, is amazing and expansive. That's why my map looks like I'm walking in the ocean.

Pro tip: plan on arriving before 10am if you want to be able to guarantee a place to park and enter. Once the lot is full, the park attendant will have to ask you to leave and come back later or on another day to try your luck. I think the lot holds 20-30 cars at most. If you meet Don, he's like a young Jack Nicholson.

If you're looking for a quick 1/4 day hike it is great! Little disappointing that you cannot get to the true summit or Morse Mountain secondary to private homes but still a good view and private beach to descend to.

Employee at the parking lot turned us away, extremely rude, saying that the lot was full, and then I happened to overhear him saying to the car behind us that he saw a spot that he could squeeze them into.
