I would rate this as an Easy hike. There are no elevation changes to speak of. Nice forest trail if you need something out of the sun on a warm day. Goes past the dinghy dock on Garrison Bay where boaters come to shore. There is a spur to Bell Point (marked by small sign) about half way around the trail; at the Point you can look out to Wescott Bay and climb down to the shore if you like. There is a short section along the east portion that looks like an old cart path which is very lovely when the sun shines through the trees; almost like a fairy tale woodland path. In the spring, we have seen carpets of small white flowers here.

Short and sweet! Well maintained trail and beautiful views of the bay.

This hike had a fun history component. The hike itself was a bit bland and may not be worth it unless you are a history buff. Not a ton of people around which was nice but we did go on a Tuesday afternoon.

After doing the Young Hill hike this was a letdown, no good views and it's mostly forest. I didn't even know we were near the ocean most of the walk.

Great trail! From the parking lot, walk down to the encampment and walk across the encampment (to the right) and begin the trail closest to the water. Beautiful forest adjacent to the water and plenty of Stellar Sea Eagles. Had the trail to ourselves!

Beautiful hike with a lot of history. Makes a great "date" hike, especially if you stay at Roche Harbor! Or you could camp, (not at this park though)-- it just costs so much to ride the ferry to get to the island, you really should stay awile.
