We made it to the lighthouse while it was still clear then left as the fog was rolling in. Fun little trek :)

Nice trail. Views limited but very nice dense woods and shady!

Beautiful hike!

Different types of environments from beach to forrest. Really beautiful.

Short but great views of the ocean.

To clarify a good place to start on the trail: Follow Mercer Lake Rd along the lake until it becomes Mercer View Dr. Take Twin Fawn Dr which forks off to the left. There is a sign that says no turnaround, but ignore that. Follow Twin Fawn Dr until the end where there is a turnaround (for cars, not long RVs) and parking for the trail. On 9/6/17 it was a fine trail with no obstacles (and lots of ripe berries). It was mowed grass and in the sun for the first 0.5 miles, then the trail crossed a bridge and went into a cool arch of trees.

Like other people mentioned, the trail map shown is the road up to the trails. The nice things were that there were lots of different trail options of varying lengths and they were mostly well marked. We did about 9 miles and the things I did not like were that the trails started near the top and I don't like starting my long hikes going down. It makes the end a little rough. Also, a bunch of the trails are super overgrown and not well maintained. It also was a lot of the same thing. The forest was pretty, but it was a lot of the same things. Overall it was a fine hike, but not one that I feel the need to go back and do again. The last thing is when I'm hiking that close to the coast, I want to actually be able to see the coast at some point and I wasn't able to because the trees were too thick.

Camped in the nearby developed campsite. Hiked out to the beach twice. Was incredibly peaceful. Encountered almost no people. Watched an amazing sunset in a hidden beach. Nothing like this in the city!

Did the loop clockwise, great but watch for bikers. saw a spotted owl about 1/2 mile from the trailhead, awesome.

My sister was on crutches and made it up just fine. The view is incredible. Worth it 100%.

Easy parking at the group campground. Beautiful hike near Lake Woahink.

once you have found out where to parc and the entrance to the hike it is an easy but beautiful single trail, well maintained. It is tranquil and offers great views on the lake.
