    13km of stunning coastal scenery with a good workout – definitely a grade 4.

    The trail threw some challenges our way, but the ever-changing views kept me motivated. Moonlight Head was a highlight – incredible cliffs and apparently a great spot for whale watching in winter (next time!).

    Loved the detour down to Wreck Beach at low tide. The shipwreck anchors were an eerie sight. Be warned though, those steps back up are no joke!

    Finally reaching Devil’s Kitchen was a great feeling. The campsite looks perfect for a relaxing night with epic ocean views. Highly recommend this hike for anyone with a moderate fitness level looking for stunning coastal scenery!
