Comment This trail has been bumped to the top of my list of favourites. The route is easy to follow and the views are incredible. I loved that I was walking in a wooded trail then on a boardwalk to shore walk. We encountered birds along the trail. A picnic table halfway allowed us to enjoy a beverage and snack before heading out.
