Great trail! First part is play but second part is a scramble... more moderate than easy. View from top is gorgeous

Easy in/out. Small parking area which keeps the beach from being over crowded. Beautiful views. Great for water play, relaxing, and exploring the surrounding cliffs.

It is an easy walk to tall cliffs and towering old growth Douglas firs frame the stunning Watmough Bay Preserve at the south end of Lopez.
