Nice, easy trail - as depicted in write-up. Wide, gravel-covered walk (lots of relatively fresh bear skat) out to water. Very nice views of the water and mountains.

Started with black bear sighting 50 meters from parking lot-bells made it saunter off into woods. Overall, nice views of lowlands and water; very wet still in all low sections. Wild flowers just starting to bloom, high shrubs/plants on both sides of trail (above lowlands) made it a single file hike (if you’re not the lead dog the view doesn’t change - much). Saw very large golden eagle on way back - majestic. Certain I’d rate it a 5 once it’s a bit drier.

It’s an easy flat trail with great views the entire way. The ocean at the end is gorgeous.

Nice, easy trail...

It was beautiful and amazing! becareful though! Wear proper gear and hiking poles are highly recommended. It's extremely steep so be prepared. There is wild blueberries along the way, so be prepared to run into bears. Bring your bear spray! Overall the view is very scenic and I highly recommend this hike!

super easy to get right up to the glacier. Great views, lots of tourists.
