Did this in winter... wear waterproof shoes! Worth the very short hike!

My husband and I got up super early and hiked in the semi dark so that we could be at the top of Beacon Heights at sunrise. Totally worth it!

Went on the hike with my 8, 6, and 2 year olds and it was the perfect length. There are 2 large flat rock areas with gorgeous views. Highly recommended for those with a small child that won’t ride in a backpack carrier!

Very nice trail! Lots of rocks and roots but it's not too far to the top and the views are definitely worth it!

It splits off at the top at the bench, the one on the left is a nicer view in my opinion. It connects with other trails such as mountains to sea.

Hiked on 2/18/17 Short, fairly steep and rock strewn path. Well travelled. The view is amazing from a huge granite space suitable for lounging and picnicking.
