Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

It was a bit easier than i had thought, so if you're looking for a nice, quick, casual hike, this is a good one! I did it on a March Monday morning, and I encountered 2 other people the entire time.

Great View

Pretty rewarding view for how easy of a hike it is. Went with a couple friends, easy and straight forward there and back.

Easy and quick trail

If you plan on going in the water make sure you bring your water shoes as the beach has lots of broken shells and barnacles on it.
