Great trail ! Very easy walk. If you want a little more difficulty, there are many paths to the rocks overlooking the bay. Great views and access to the beach.

Trail is OPEN! And beautiful! Ocean views, cool ruins near the end, brings you right out to the beach a little past the ruins. Tons of rocky outcrops you can climb around on, lots of tide pools. Would be a great trail to bring a picnic out with you and post up on the rocks for lunch. Trail itself is easy, great for kids and dogs.

Beautiful spot! Took the pup and walked along the shoreline for a bit. The path going right leads to the ruins!

My kids (6 and 3) and I had a blast on this trail. We spent more time by the rocks and tidal pools, overlooking the ocean (which I was nervous about at first, with a loose cannon three year-old, but which turned out to be very manageable) than on the trails themselves. But it was a great hour and a half outside with my little ones! I would recommend hiking, rain or snow boots as some areas of the trails were super muddy or were tough to pass without getting your feet wet in sneakers. Nothing a change of socks and sneakers (and in our case, pants) wont fix, but if you prefer to avoid that...

A family friendly trail with amazing views of the ocean. There were places along the way to climb on the rocks next to the water.

Beautiful view! Well groomed short trail along rocky ocean coast. Rocks along water are fun to walk on and are great exercise. Trails have criss crossing paths whichseems like a maze at times. Fun for the family to explore. I have walked and Mt. Biked these trails.

One of my favorites with the pup. Don’t have her leashed, usually come across nice friendly people, many with well behaved dogs as well. The end point at Scarborough is beautiful very instagram worthy. Only thing I’ll say is I find it hard to believe that it’s two miles total, even taking the long loop to the left when you first enter. Very easy walk
