On a sunny day, go early in the morning because it will warm up and the crowds will show up there too. Very easy walk and nice to stop to see what wild bird or seal that might be in the area. This is a bird lovers trail.

Make sure to pay attention to the signs! I didn't, and I paid for it by going up the downhill and then back down. Overall, fantastic trail and easy to maneuver on.

Awsome view at the top. Some trails are very rocky and can be tough on your ankles. Watch out for ATVs, they tend to not look out for hikers. Overall nice hike.

It was a nice hike. Pretty, fairly flat, easy for dogs and kids. The trail was well maintained.
