WalkingGreat!

It’s a lot of fun. Very flat. The rock path is pretty tough and you have to really watch your step. Light houses are cool but nothing special.

This is not a difficult trail but not easy either. You start by crossing a mile plus breakwater comprised of uneven boulders. You need to be agile to navigate certain areas as it is not all level and flat. Once you hit the other side then you walk for approx 2 plus miles on the beach. Walking in sand is a slog but the scenery is gorgeous as is the isolation. I saw more seals than humans on the trail as well as a whale sighting. There are also coyotes that roam the beaches so be mindful if you are considering taking the trail with your dog.

Beautiful hike! We brought our Boxer doggo and he loved it, however we walked along the beach and came upon a pack of large coyotes, luckily we saw them before our pup did! They wandered off the beach but stalked us for a bit, so hikers beware just in case! Other than that great hike, just watch your back!

HikingGreat!

Amazing walk. The rock pier was so much fun. My 73 year old mother did it with us. People clapped for her so that was cool. We all wore hiking shoes and I felt that was very helpful. and oh yeah, don't forget to watch the birds drop the clams on the rocks to break them open the eat the insides, very clever. The walk along the ocean was really nice. When we first went in, there was nobody there and we had the beach to ourselves. We collected huge shells and also saw a pod of seals close to the beach. The walk was fantastically exhausting because first you walk on the rocks, then in the sand of the beach and then back again on the rocks. Take lots of water and some snacks, By the end of it you are ready to eat the lobster roll that you so much deserve.

Fantastic. Rock scramble over the breakwater was just the right side of too tough for my big dog — and the beach on the other side was incredible.

Amazing! Wonderful views. Probably best to wear hiking boots for all the rocks. But fun, adventurous, and beautiful!

Hiked 7/20: absolutely loved this experience from beginning to end. rock pier is so fun and beautiful and the beach beyond it is secluded and stunning! saw a bob of 30+ curious seals at the point, many of whom swam beside me and escorted me back to the pier at dusk. walking the pier back in the dark with a headlamp was phenomenal and you feel totally safe doing it. A+ "trail" and would do this again if ever in the area.

Walked this trail/Rocky jetty area today. Rocks were extremely slippery and we left with some scratches on our legs. It started rainy unexpectedly while we were out there and it made for an extremely dangerous walk back. We are experienced hikers but this trail isn't very easy. It was fun and beautiful once we got to the beach and the lighthouse.

One of the best trails I’ve walked. You’re going to want to pack a bag with drinks and snacks. Wear a swimsuit and good walking shoes. Once you pass the rocks and the dunes it brings you to a beach that not many people are at. I made the mistake of not bringing food and drinks and couldn’t stay at the beach as long as I wanted
