Description

Head up the natural stairs from the Cannery Point parking lot. A small spur loop will be to your right giving you a good view of Whaler's Cove and Coal Chute Point. Another short spur trail straight ahead just a little further leads you to another good viewpoint. Turn left to stay on this trail. Bluefish Cove will soon emerge on the right. The trail then enters pine forest. Cabin Trail and Whaler's Knoll Trail join on the left at 0.2 and 0.3 miles. Keep Whalers Knoll on your left. Another good view of Bluefish Cove is shortly thereafter to your right. The trail then turns west with Big Dome to your right and then south to leave the pine forest again and reach the parking lot on the other end of the park.
