A really challenging trail in places. Many ups and down as you hike. Hiking along and over rocks along the cliffs over the sound . It doesn't get better than this!

Amazing view just a mere .25 mile in! Highly recommend this trail for great views and all levels. Lots of people on this trail. When you get to the cove it is breathtaking. It was busy at the cove with people taking pictures and having picnics but it felt like a private little secret only you and those on the beach found.
