Can't say enough about this little trail! only down side was we did this first and then nothing could compare to the beauty, peace and diversity. Cliffs, forest, stone paths, rocky beach, raised wood paths and amazing views! We walked down on to the stone beach and when we went back to the main trail we walked into a deer quite literally. There was no one there. (it was a little after 1:30pm on a Friday) I could have stayed there all day and can't wait to go back. fyi great short trail for kids but would recommend keeping any eye on them near the cliffs. No kids? No problem! This trail can go from easy to moderate if you decide climb up and down the granite cliffs like we did. In short it could take you 45 min or from 1:30 to 4:00 if you want to climb around and explore... and you should definitely explore!

Great hike even for my wife who has balance problems and must use hiking poles. Some rock steps were a bit tricky. Most beautiful views yet in the park.
