If you’re hurrying to catch low tide to cross over to the rocky island of Western Ear, this is the shorter of two trails to get you there. But the Cliff Trail has more ups and downs along the cliffs than the Western Head Trail and requires a longer walk on the unpaved Western Head Road to reach the trailhead. Highlights: Dramatic cliff views; low-tide walk to Western Ear.
