This is an amazing trail from start to finish. Beautiful wildflowers and gorgeous views. Hiking this trail in the spring there are many hungry insects so be prepared. The trail is well marked with the state trail markers nailed into trees. One caution to any hikers many times this trail is on the edge of a very steep drop. There are a few benches along the trail to rest and take in the view. There is also a picnic area with a swing and a bench.

This is actually a cross country ski trail, but hiking it is fun. Pretty easy trail, but if you want the full experience go in the fall when there is less foliage to obscure the views.

This was a nice and easy trail with great trail markers to follow. The gulf was a great site to check out. The trail was close to the edge for a good bit so I would keep watch of young children and pets on this one. But overall a nice quick adventure.
