Visiting family for Thanksgiving, we went on a whim and very glad we did. We walked the bluffs then the beach back to the parking lot. Great views, really enjoyed it.

Great views, many trail options and a variety of surfaces. Beautiful in the fall. Loved hearing the waves crash from the trail. Walked along the shore afterwards to get a different view of the bluffs. Dog friendly (she had a great time too)

Nice walk. It took about 1.5 hours. Bluffs are neat. We walked the trail close to the bluffs and returned along the shore.

Decent trail and can be fun along the edge. The trail has one hill but is basically easy overall. Three bluffs are unique. I went with a big group and everyone wanted to take 100 pictures. Good place to go if you want to see something different. If you are looking for a hike this is alright.

My posse did the Bluffs trail and then dropped down onto the beach and walked back along the shore to our starting point. There's a place to climb up at the end of the beach that cuts back to the main trail. Beautiful views, but heavily trafficked (most likely due to the holiday weekend).
