An easy to moderate hike. Find this trail next to the famous Keltic Inn. Easy parking and excess to the trail. Stunning views. Take a picnic and eat at the top of hike..... 2 hours as we stopped so many times to enjoy the views.

We hiked this trail early in the morning. It was 2.4 miles in length beginning in the woods and ending with beautiful views of the ocean. We were early enough to see the lobster boats loading their catch. We enjoyed it from start to finish.

An easy walk out to the end of the trail where we sat and enjoyed our lunch while looking out at the sea and birds.
