We visited on a chilly Sunday morning and it was gorgeous! There is a decent sized parking lot. There was a self pay meter but I believe that since we visited in the off season, the meter was covered and parking was free. There are public bathrooms and plenty of benches in the open grassy field when first entering. We... More

We went to the furthest parking lot after reading other reviews on Trip Advisor. We were glad we did! We climbed up the steps and hiked across the top of the ridge - looking down all the tall peaks. It was really interesting - and if you read about it there on the boards posted at the park - you... More

Went for a hike at the park on a beautiful sunny day. The mile long hike along the beach is pretty strenuous. Walking in loose rock can't be difficult. The walk back along the trail above the bluffs was fantastic. EXCELLENT way to spend a couple of hours. And the best part if this park is that it's ever changing.... More

Took us 3 hrs to do the moderate hike from the parking lot. Thankful to see bathrooms at the parking lot and down by the beach. Really enjoyed the hike through the woods, at the top of the bluffs and down on the beach. Love this hidden treasure!

Being a local, I have seen this change in so many ways. It's nice to see this place preserved for future observations. The po public toilets are a positive addition to the area.

A wonderful place to see a very different take on the Lake Ontario shoreline. We hiked as far as we felt we could handle and it was amazing! Not a place for children to hike but if you have no issues with medium impact walking you'll do fine. Just be careful around the ledges and tree roots coming out of... More

Was looking for a state park we hadn't been to and came across this on Google, can't believe we didn't know about this place before! It was fantastic, such beautiful views and a lovely walk along the cliffs! We did the hike along the bluffs and back across the beach and it took 2 hours, perfect in the summertime.
