Really pretty views just from driving around, but much of the paths were covered in broken glass. I took my dog but we had to go elsewhere since there’s a good chance she would have cut her paws on the paths. Wouldn’t recommend if you are bringing a dog!

This really isn’t a trail per se but I’m reading at five star because I love the abandon buildings in the Fort and I also love the view and I also enjoy the graffiti and how you can get all the way down to the water

Amazing beaches and cliffs to explore. Closed down compound makes a great building to explore too, you can spend hours here and not want to leave!

Trail was hard to find at one point and had to go off path, but it made for great adventure to the cliffs. The old fort and graffiti is great!!

Awesome place to have a picnic, relax and explore. You could spend the entire day here. The trail is small. The fort has so much vegetation growing over the paths where some places are hard to access. Still deff worth visiting.

Might be easier on October or March when there is less Trail Hiding brush. Tickets, thorns, vines, ivy and bramble make this hiking a confusing scramble in vibrant July
