It takes about 45 min. to walk out, but the view is so worth it. The path is rocky and uneven, up and down alot, so its a hike , not a stroll.

We went on this trail while staying the the Keltic lodge. It was a bit cold for end of June - around 13 degrees, but the mosquitos were nasty!
The trail itself is nice, not very easy, and some parts are a bit dangerous, but the views of the ocean are great.

Awesome hike with spectacular views and fairly mild terrain. Takes a bit of time to find it, but it is well worth the search! Highly recommended!!!

We went in the evening and found the hike to be fairly easy but quite pretty along the way. There are some tree roots that could be tripped upon if not careful. There are some steep areas beside the path.

This is an easy hike, partly paved. I took a walking stick, because there are areas of loose soil, roots, and rocks. Beautiful views of the ocean and cliffs!
