Good quick HIIT style workout, no real scenery and for such a hilly walk there are no real good vantage points.

I would recommend deet for this trail as there is a tick warning at the onset. The surrounding town and the harbor itself are beautiful. The trail is at a continuous incline so a nice bit of a challenge for such a short trail. Loads of chipmunks and spiders and a chorus of hawks waiting for those furry little chipmunks.

A bit chewed up do to high traffic. But has the advantage of decent hill climbing. Lots of trail erosion. Trail needs maintenance badly in spots.

Terrain was fun and a great workout. It goes up and down and up and down - footing is pretty good. Most of the trail is in the shade so that was nice on a 90+ degree day. Unfortunately not really that scenic and no clearings or peaks or lookout points. The trail keeps going past Lawrence Hill Rd but is much easier south of Lawrence Hill Rd so I would stop and turn around there next time. They had kayak rentals at the trailhead which might be fun in the future.

Rigorous in parts but incredibly satisfying. Beautiful! Well worth it

Shady, exactly what was needed on this hot day. Saw a lot of chipmunks and heard them squeaking. Hoped for a water view but there wasn’t a clearing that I could find. Sun filtering through the leaves was beautiful though and a park just a little down the road worked for picnicking.

I have done this trail many times as I live nearby. There are a bunch of elevation changes with rocks and stairs. Its a nice step up if you want something a little different in terms of difficultly.
