Runner Notes

One can't go wrong taking a run along this bluff's edge trail. It is flat with vistas that take your attention away from how much you might be hurting if you are training hard!

Description

This trail branches off from the Cavern Point Loop Trail, leads out to Potato Harbor and adds more coastal views to your run. This is a relatively flat trail with a couple side trails leading out to the bluff's edges. Enjoy all the outcroppings and peeks into the numerous sea caves that can be found along the way.
